This appears to be because of the transformation of the expression performed in
XPathUtil#adaptParamsForXalan which takes a variable reference at the start of
the expression and maps to a context node. The documentation implies this is
     * Given all of this, if no context node is set for the evaluation
     * of the XPath expression, one must be set so Xalan 
     * can successfully evaluate a JSTL XPath expression.
     * (it will not work if the context node is given as a varialbe
     * at the beginning of the expression)

However, Xalan is able to handle variable references like this through its
VariableStack API (or as a XPathVariableResolver when called via the JAXP API).
