That's just not what id/refid DO.  refid is a link to a previously defined
object.  A significant amount of code in Ant serves the purpose of enforcing the
principle that to define any other attribute in conjunction with refid is an
error, not only on filesets but most if not all tasks and types.  The normal way
to do this is by defining the patternsets and selectors that make your fileset
what it is and mix and match these by refid into different filesets.  Another
possible means of defining a fileset for later refinement might involve the
presetdef task.  These are the options open to you today.  If you have no
control over the template filesets the only solution I see is a custom task.  In
the future it might be possible to provide such a task to obtain a cloned
fileset instance (possibly of any Cloneable object).
