So you want to have parts of the sitemap executed dependent on some sort
of value?
Why not use an action? The contents of the action are only executed if
you return an Hashmap (i.e. you can check your ID and decide).
(Maybe i didn't understand your problem well?)

<map:match ...>
<map:act type="myAttributeCheckAction">
	<map:parameter name="conf" value="someID" />
	<map:transform src="..." />
<map:act type="myAttributeCheckAction">
	<map:parameter name="conf" value="someOtherID" />
	<map:transform src="..." />
