I believe that my response to bug 1811 addresses this point.

I have reclassified the bug as "minor" (meaning editorial) because I think the
intent of the Working Group in this area has always been clear.

You're right to point out that passing in an initial mode or initial template is
an alternative way of passing in stylesheet parameters, and that some people
might feel that using xsl:choose on an explicit parameter is better design
practice. I have to say, however, that I've found the use of an initial mode or
initial template is a very convenient way of allowing a multi-phase stylesheet
to be debugged. I think we should refrain from giving usage advice in this area.

I hope you will accept the change described in my response to 1811 as an
adequate response to this issue; if not, please reopen the bug.
