It shouldn't be the parser (It's not a syntax error) You should have
(most likely) got a run time error saying that you could not generate an
attribute node (it depends on the rest of your template that you didn't

<xsl:template match="/report/version[@id]">

does not match id attributes it matches version elements that have an

	<xsl:attribute name="id">bar</xsl:attribute>

then generates an id attribute but you may only do this if you have not
already started to generate child elements or text of the parent

Probably you want something like

<xsl:template match="*|@*">
<xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

<xsl:template match="version/@id">
	<xsl:attribute name="id">bar</xsl:attribute>
