Well, the idea of a module is to contain reusable, context independent
functions, isn't it? You should pass the document as a parameter, e.g. 

> declare function dp:gatts($context as document-node(),
>                           $attributes as xs:string) as element()
> {
> for $att in $context//rng:define[@name=$attributes]
> return
> <att>{$att}</att>
> };
