Just to be absolutely clear here: using styling to set default values
is a Really Bad Idea. There are, however, lots of other valid reasons
for passing parameters to the styling XSL. My answer was intended
in those general terms, and certainly not as a justification for
passing selected="selected" in this way. That should indeed be done
in binding or with <fd:initial-value>foo</initial-value>.
