yes or make it a match template instead of named. But still It's not
uncommon for me to find myself with a largeish called template with,
within its code lots of implicit assumtions on the current nde. And when
you find yourself needing to call that in another context wrapping it in
xsl:for-each is often the least intrusive change.
