No, but that is not a problem, if you do:
<xsl:apply-templates select="foo" mode="bar">
the template:
<xsl:template match="foo" />
will not be called, only
<xsl:template match="foo" mode="bar"/>
and there you can simply do:
<xsl:template match="foo" mode="bar">
  <!-- do something -->
  <xsl:apply-templates mode="bar"/>
to keep your mode.

what about <xsl:apply-templates />

You can't, but

<xsl:apply-templates mode="some-mode"/>
<xsl:apply-templates mode="some-other-mode"/>

should have the desired effect. But are you sure you realy need modes.
