Short version: While in a for-each loop, how can I match the current node's
attribute (say @NAME) against an attribute in another node somewhere else
without knowing that attribute's name?

 Essentially, "if the @NAME attribute
of this node is the same as an attribute in the node over there, do

<xsl:for-each select="xxx">
  <xsl:if test="@NAME=../../x/y//z/@*"/>

will test the value of the current NAME attribute against the node set
of all attributes selected and be true if any of them matches.

If you want to know which ones match, do instead

<xsl:for-each select="xxx">
  <xsl:for-each (or copy-of or variable or apply-templates)

or, this NAME is "row1". if there is an attribute in the node
over there named "row1" what is its value?

<xsl:for-each select="xxx">
