[xsl] saxon with sql extension and attribute template values

I'm using saxon8-9-0-3j in combination with the sql extension. But using it in a more dynamic way (providing the sql select components by variables or parameters) doesn't work. In the documentation Michael Kay declares the query attributes as being "attribute value templates", but I just get expected results, when I use literal values. It doesn't work either with an xsl:attribute declaration (see "row-tag").

<xsl:variable name="table" as="xs:string">tc_ad</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="cols" as="xs:string">id,nationalidnr,subject</xsl:variable>
<sql:query connection="$connection" table="{$table}" column="{$cols}" column-tag="col" >
<xsl:attribute name="row-tag">
<xsl:value-of select="$table"/>

So what am I missing, or is the sql extension really just a show case (Michael Kay warns the user at the beginning of the description that it is not "production-quality")?
