I always prefer this way of copying, generally using a mode, on particular
namespaces or all elements. so

<xsl:template match="*" mode="copier">
<xsl:copy><xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
<xsl:apply-templates mode="copier"/>
<xsl:template match="tag2" mode="copier">
<xsl:template math="anElement">
<xsl:apply-templates mode="copier"/>

so that everything gets copied with the copier mode, but tag2 doesn't and it
escapes the mode. This is just a personal preference though.
