templates are not "owned" by elements in the result tree they are distinguished by being matched to elements in the input. They then
generate a fragment of the output.

Clearly a single template can generate A1 and A2 as siblings rather than
A2 being a child of A1. You just make them siblings rather than a child
in the output.

Right I got your point. That looks good. So I can create a sibling element instead of a child. Perhaps its rather obvious for you on how to do it but I dont have any clue on how to create a sibling element. Could you advise me on that.

you say

and not the default


But that is not the default. the default behaviour just gives you the character content and no elements at all in the result tree. You only have A2 as a child of A1 as that's the way you have it in your stylesheet 9as I said in my first reply)

You're right. Perhaps I should have said 'in the context of my stylesheet the behaviour is such'. Sorry about that ! :)
