If one pays attention to have the identity rule in a separate
stylesheet module, and always imports that stylesheet module first
from any importing module, this should work as intended.

I almost never have had to use in my real work <xsl:apply-imports> or
its better XSLT 2 counterpart <xsl:next-match>, therefore my style has
almost nothing of an OO style. However, I still can explain these and
provide adequate examples of their use :)
