I've very rarely used this capability myself. But in general, if the
semantics of a construct are perfectly well-defined, then it's a bad idea to
make it an error just because you can't see many people using it. In
principle it's a good idea if the code in your stylesheet is reusable, and
there's no intrinsic reason to prevent you writing code that can be called
in more than one way.
