This is a bit tricky because "implicit existential quantification" applies
only to operators like "=", not to functions like contains(). In other
words, A="region" means "if any A equals 'region'", but contains(A,
"region") means "if the first A contains 'region'". But you can do it with a

xsl:if test="ancestor::node()[contains(name(), 'region')]"
