Well, what if the values of 'bar', 'baz' and 'quux' are known to begin
with?  I don't think this will work.

I'm afraid I don't understand, then.

If the values of 'bar' etc. are known, then you can do

<xsl:template match="*[@att='bar']">...</xsl:template>

as I suggested in part of the message that you deleted.

If you meant to say that the values are *un*known, then it's a bit more complicated. I suppose you should set up top-level parameters to the stylesheet called "barval", "bazval", "quuxval", etc., and then use a big choice:

<xsl:template match="*">
    <xsl:when test="@att=$barval">
      <xsl:call-template name="bar"/>
    <xsl:when test="@att=$bazval">
      <xsl:call-template name="baz"/>
