In XSLT 3.0 you can do this with static variables/parameters:

<xsl:param name="disk" static="yes" required="yes">

<xsl:import _href="{$disk}/path"/>

Note the underscore. This is referred to as a "shadow attribute" - it is
evaluated at preprocessing time (like use-when). The value of the static
parameter $disk must be available at compile time. In this example I've made
it required, but you can give it a default if you want, and make it optional.

It can't be done in 2.0 unless you implement your own preprocessor.
