Not in general. In general you want to take the "identity transform"
stylesheet from the XSLT spec and one extra template to junk empty

<xsl:template match="*[not(node())]"/>

and you are done.

If you know all your empty elements are at one level and you want to
copy all the non empty children of A then that you can do with a single

<xsl:copy-of select="*[node()]"/>
