Try with p:viewport :
http://www.w3.org/TR/xproc/#p.viewport

Evaluation of a dynamically constructed pipeline (e.g. from a name contained in an attribute) is not possible in vanilla XProc, but if you're fine with sticking to a specific processor (e.g. Calabash) some of them provide an extension step for that (e.g. cx:eval http://xmlcalabash.com/docs/reference/cx-eval.html)

Hope this helps,
Romain.
