The match attribute of xsl:template is a match pattern, not an XPath

In XSLT 1.0, match="g" matches exactly the same elements as match="//g".
There's a slight difference in 2.0, because match="//g" will only match g
elements that are in a tree with a document node as its root - which means
the processor has extra checks to do in this case.

Similarly, select="./@name" is precisely equivalent to select="@name".
