There are two things to say about the above:

1) It's a flaw which I expect will be corrected that you can't say

    <xsl:template match="document/description">
      <meta name="content" description="{.}"/>

2) It's a feature :-) that you will get an XML empty element in your
   output:  HTML as it stands is not valid XML.
