This is cool. Nicely done.

After sleeping on it I was able to answer my own question, however I suspect
that that p1 and p2 templates could be generalised to handle any named
parameter, but haven't figured that out yet.

How about

<xsl:template match='p' mode='parameters'>
    <xsl:param name='caption'/>
    <xsl:variable name="@name"/>
    <xsl:value-of select='$caption/p[@name=$name]/@value'/>

Then you'd need

<caption key='Client not on file'>
 <p name="client-no" value='123456'/>
 <p name="priority" value='99'/>


<target xml:lang='en'>Client number <p name="client-no"/> not on file. Priority:
<p name="priority"/></target>

You've already done the hard part. Too bad the parameter names have to be in one language. :-)
