This is used extensively in FXSL for XSLT2.

Where a test does not require any source document, then the initial
template is defined like:

<xsl:template match="/" name="initial"> etc.

Then you can invoke the test from the command line, without having to
supply a source XML document.

But this is not convenient for Dmitre, as he uses some development
environment, which makes it awkward (I don't know the details). So the
matxh ="/" is retained for this purpose.
