  Yes, if you can find a suitable name ;-) I would personally
prefer something like the XSLT conditional compilation with the
attribute @when:

<p:with-option name="foo" select="$bar"  when="p:value-available('bar')"/>
<p:with-option name="foo" select="xyzzy" when="not(p:value-available('bar'))"/>

  But maybe that's too big a change for a CR?
