Nothing wrong with that formulationbI guess I have enough XSLT 2 brain
damage that I forget about being able to select the head of a possibly
multi-item sequence as a shortcut for the if/then/else I wrote p

I spend a lot of time (or have spent) correcting older XSLT code to use
exactly that formulation so I should really start there b&

What's wrong with

<xsl:template match="section">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="@*" mode="#current" />
        <xsl:attribute name="id"
)) => head()" />
        <xsl:apply-templates mode="#current" />

I am assuming XSLT 3, here, but that should be a fairly safe assumption
these days.
