No, it has to be a list of specific element names, whitespace-separated.
If you gave the name "*", it would match the document element, which
would make the whole exercise rather pointless.

You don't need to have a template of the form match="element-name", but
you do need to have a template rule that matches the preview element.
The rule is triggered automatically when the XML parser hits the end tag
for a registered preview element, it does not need to be fired using
