I think the answer is that despite there being two xsl:mode declarations,
there is only one mode, and the properties/attributes of that mode (such as
on-no-match) are determined by the highest-precedence definition. In this case
the two definitions of the mode are identical so there is no ambiguity.

Because there is only one mode named foo, there is no ambiguity as to which
template rules it contains.
