The name of a template being called must be a fixed string, just as when you
call a function or method in languages like C or Java. Variables can only be
used in XPath expressions, and the name attribute of call-template is not an
XPath expression.

You can often achieve a dynamic call by using apply-templates to some
suitable node.
