Having a single template is not weird, in fact while XSLT was being designed it was thought to be such a common and important use case that a special "easy" syntax was designed for that case. The "literal result element as stylesheet" (or in xslt2 terminoligy "simplified stylesheet") If your stylesheet just consists of a single template matching "/" you can drop the outer xsl:tstylesheet and xsl:template element markup.
Hmm, I have read through the recommendation a dozen times, but it seems that I have always missed this section. Now things become clear... :)
