Re:  Ridiculous XPath expression
can't you just go

<xsl:template match="input.form">
 <xsl:for-each select="*[not(self::input.form or self::input.link)]">

No I don't trust that at all! XSLT has a read-only input tree.
Ypur posted Xpath was looking at done attributes in the source tree, so
it couldn't reflect processing that had been done with this stylesheet
(unless you are using some extension function somewhere)
