No, but there are other ways to skin the same cat.

For example, you could have templates in a mode matching your @level
attributes, distinguished by value, which add whichever attributes
are peculiar to that particular level. Then just apply templates to
parent::*/@level in that mode. (And use an attribute set for the
attributes common to all levels.)


<xsl:template mode="TOCTitleLvl" match="@level[.='1']">
   <xsl:attribute name="font-size">125%</xsl:attribute>

<xsl:template mode="TOCTitleLvl" match="@level[.='2']">
   <xsl:attribute name="font-size">115%</xsl:attribute>
   <xsl:attribute name="font-style">italic</xsl:attribute>

... etc ...


<fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="as_SectionTOCTitle">
   <xsl:apply-templates mode="TOCTitleLvl" select="../@level"/>

>So my question is, are there plans to allow this in a future XSLT

Dunno. But from what I've seen, named attribute sets are rarely used
outside the context of FO, so this requirement might not have gotten
much attention.
