I think that trying to answer the following question can be interesting and
useful for the members of our community.

 Is the following statement true or false:

"The transformation below is an identity transformation":

 <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
	<xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
	<xsl:template match="@* | node()">
			<xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>
			<xsl:apply-templates select="node()[1]"/>
		<xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::node()[1]"/>
