Yes, that's a legal stylesheet.

I suspect you got the command line arguments wrong. This message from Saxon
means that the file supplied as the stylesheet document did not have
xsl:stylesheet or xsl:transform as its root. In fact more specifically I think
it means the local name of the root element was not "stylesheet" or
"transform" - you get a different message if only the namespace is wrong.
