this would actually be much easier in xpath 2 as xpath 1 is rather
restricted on what you can do with the names of elements.
If you were comparing the contents of elements in each of the nodes you
could use the automatic existential quantification of = to do the right
thing, but as you need to compare content against name it's a bit

So long as your  $set2/parameters dont have two children with the same
name, i think this works.

     = count($set1/menu/item/param[@required='y'])

ie the number of parameters in set 2 whose name matches a required param
in set 1 should equal teh number of required params in set 1.
