Thank you for this hint, but it isn't practicable for me (I gave just a
simplified example); the stylesheet is rather complex: 11
apply-templates in mode "slenderise" ...

I would prefer the "pass-fail" solution proposed by Michael Kay, but
when I tried the following, I get again an error:
  <xsl:template match="@db:type |
                       @db:size |
                       priority="2" />
                       use-when="$slenderise.level = 1"

   XPST0008: Error in use-when expression. XPath syntax error at char 18
on line 211 in
  {$slenderise.level = 1}:
    Variable $slenderise.level has not been declared

The parameter is definitively set, so what is wrong? "$slenderise.level
= 1" can be evaluated to a boolean, or am I missing another thing?
