Sure, you can have the first appendix process all
of its following-siblings, like this:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:template match="appendix[1]">
    <xsl:for-each select="following-sibling::appendix">

<xsl:template match="appendix[position() != 1]">

<xsl:template match="title">
  <xsl:copy-of select="."/>


The empty <xsl:template match="appendix[position() != 1]">
makes sure you don't double process the other appendixes.
