Actually all you need do is delete that template then things will work
as you expect.

You do not need a template for MEASURE, the default one, which is

<xsl:template match="MEASURE">

does what you want.

As for what your template _is_ doing.

    <xsl:for-each select=".">

this is always a no-op, "." is the current node so
for-each select="."
just changes the current node to the current node.


an xsl:choose only executes one branch, the first one that tests true,

                  <xsl:when test="BOOLEAN">
                            <xsl:apply-templates select="BOOLEAN"/>

says if the current node has a child BOOLEAN (anywhere) then process all
BOOLEAN children (and do not process any other nodes).
