Right now I am using this:

<xsl:template match="section" as="element(section)">
      <xsl:variable name="previous" select="preceding-sibling::*[1]"
      <xsl:if test="$previous/local-name() = 'target'">
        <xsl:attribute name="id">
          <xsl:value-of select="$previous/@refid"/>

  <xsl:template match="target"/>

It is an adaptation of some of the solutions from the other replies,
and works for the actual XML document I am processing. The id for any
<section> is provided by a <target> that immediately precedes it.  Not
all <section>s have an immediately preceding <target>.
