Default xsl:variable holding name of an xsl:param

Hello all,

I have the following situation:

I am developing a set of XSLs that take an XML doc as input and generate an HTML+Javascript editor for this particular XML doc.
These XSLs are invoked by a native Windows app, using the IE ActiveX control in hosted mode (so, only the latest version of MSXML is available!); something like the AJAX concept, but all on the desktop.

The only way that the native app has to pass context information to the XSLs is via runtime xsl:params.

Among others, the native app passes the following xsl:params
- idList: a comma-separated list of object ids that need special processing
- <id1>, <id2>...: A number of xsl:params, each named after each value in the list and containing some information.

Is there a way to use the value of an xsl:variable as a QName to get the value of one xsl:param?

For example, in the following fragment what should be added (if anything) in the placeholder?

<xsl:template name="processInfo">
    <xsl:param name="objectId"/>

    <xsl:variable name="isDirty" select="contains($idList, $objectId)"/>

    <xsl:if test="$isDirty = 'true'">
        <xsl:variable name="objectValue" select="[-->Missing part<--]"/>


I have been googling all day about this but nothing has come up!
Could it be that I am asking the impossible?

Thank you for any help or hint that you may provide.
