Remember to work *with* the template matching rules, not *against* them:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="";
  <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

  <!-- Ignore these tags in regular processing -->
  <xsl:template match="id | eventName | applicationName | originator | 
		       variable | timestamp | typeid"/>

  <!-- copy all other attributes as '<dataset>...</dataset>' -->
  <xsl:template match="*">
    <tag> <xsl:value-of select="name()"/> </tag>
    <value> <xsl:value-of select="."/> </value>

  <xsl:template match="request">

     <!-- Convert to attributes -->
     <xsl:for-each select="id | eventName | applicationName | originator | 
				variable | timestamp | typeid">
      <xsl:attribute name="{name()}">
       <xsl:value-of select="."/>

     <!-- Do everything else -->
     <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
