essentially that's not possible: the mode needs to be a literal at compile
time not any kind of variable

you can do

 <xsl:when test="$mymode='wibble'">
  <xsl:apply-templates mode="wibble"/>
 <xsl:appy-templates mode="wobble"/>

or sometimes more convenient combine the two modes in to one, but pass in a
tunnel parameter that allows different processing when you need it. so
replace all of the above by

<xsl:appy-templates mode="wbble">
  <xsl:with-param name="mymode" select="$mymode" tunnel="yes"/><!-- if
tunnel param not already set above-->
