Are you stating that "*[name()=$keyword]" worked for me as the value of
a match attribute of xsl:template, using libxslt, quite literally "by
accident" (i.e., because the processor doesn't check this constraint)?
If so, are there any side effects which may manifest as bugs elsewhere
in the stylesheet by taking this terse approach? Do you recommend
abandoning this approach?
