Suggested instruction:
<xsl:copy-of select="key('blueprint', $contractType)"/>
where more than one para element has the designated
value in $contractType.

That's not the way I read Section 11.3, nor the way Xalan works.
"When the result [of the select=expression] is a node-set, all
the nodes in the set are copied in document order...."
The key() function returns a node-set.
