xsl:apply-templates will try to find a template matching (in your second
example) an 'A' element - there are none, so the default template is used,
which basically does nothing.  Try using xsl:copy-of instead of the
xsl:apply-templates, i.e.:

   <xsl:key name="namekey" match="*" use="concat(generate-id(..), '/',
   <xsl:template match="*">
     <xsl:copy-of select="*[generate-id()=generate-id(key('namekey',
concat(generate-id(..), '/', name ())))]"/>

I hope that works for you.
