sure. but can something like following, be simulated with XPath 2

<xsl:variable name="x">
  <xsl:call-template ... />

I think, we cannot.

I am not sure, if that's entirely correct. Working on
xsl:apply-templates with modes looks to me semi pull style, and not a
pull style in entirety!

But saying, that I am entirely wrong, amuses me (my proposal is still
a XSLT 2.x feature design discussion!) :)
