You haven't selected a child node with "child::[2]".  You've specified
the "axis" child, but not selected any nodes on that axis.

You either need to specify the node you are interested in:

child::mynode[2]   (which can be rewritten as just mynode[2])

or select any node with *


so it would be:

<xsl:with-param name="dataType" select="sequence/*[2]"/>
