xsl:include is a compile-time facility, whereas parameter values aren't
available at run-time. If you want to parameterise the stylesheet at compile
time, then you need to implement some kind of preprocessor. If this is
simple you could do it in Perl, but why not do it in XSLT? Generating
stylesheets using stylesheets is not as esoteric as it seems, and many
people do it.
