just use the attribute on xsl:number to control whether it just numbers
in the current element, or the whole document, or from teh nearest
appendix ancestor or whatever you need.

I'm not sure quite what you want as I think you have a typo in your
revised version

No, it's a bit obscure ... both the references he's pointing to (1 and 3) are within the same appendix.

So he needs xsl:number from="appendix" just as you surmised.

Spenser, this is a far cleaner better solution than what you've posted here so far.
