  <xf:func one="xpath" />           <xsl:call-template name="func">
                          becomes     <xsl:with-param name="one" 
                                                      select="xpath" />

The other problem with this syntax is you can't use it if the template
name has a prefix already.

An alternative would be to open up call-template to allow unknown
attributes to be accepted and treated as shorthand params, so

<xsl:call-template name="func" one="xpath" >

This would cover any cases where the template value wasn't an rtf and
where the template name wasn't "name".

Howver This is still an element and so still not usable in XPath
expressions, so I'd rather have

... something...

and then have 
 essentially doing something equivalent to
<xsl:variable name="x"><xf:func one="xpath" /></xsl:variable> ...
