Correct.  The very first rule in conflict resolution is to get rid of
all templates with lower import precedence - this is decided
ultimately by the order of the imports.  It doesn't matter about the
priority attribute, or the fact that match="node" is a better match
than match="*", it's all down to the order of the import statements.

The oddity (im my mind) is that "order of occurence" is the very last
all-else-has-failed-and-we-have-to-choose-one technique for templates
in the same stylesheet, but the very first for imported templates.
