Some time ago I also started to do this, but I lost these changes (did I 
do this only in build/webapp and made a buil clean afterwards? :-( ). 
The named templates are not the problem if you use <xsl:import> instead 
of <xsl:include>. The real problem are special cases.

<xsl:template match="wi:field">
   <xsl:call-template name="doSomething"/>

<xsl:template name="doSomething">
     <xsl:when test="case1">..</xsl:when>
     <xsl:when test="case2">..</xsl:when>

while with modes:

<xsl:template match="wi:field">
   <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="doSomething"/>

<xsl:template match="wi:field[case1]" mode="doSomething">

<xsl:template match="wi:field[case2]" mode="doSomething">

<xsl:template match="wi:field" mode="doSomething">

and now imagein importing this stylesheet in another one. While you have 
to rewrite the complete named template, with the moded stylesheet you 
can overload exactly one special case.

I volunteer doing this!
