  haha, no libxslt implements only XSLT-1.0 + (most) EXSLT extensions
the name of the libxml2 library doesn't come from XPath2 or XSLT2 really :-)
The fact that it implements match="*[name()=$keyword]" is simply an oversight,
it doesn't change anything to my implementation which "forgot" to check
that restriction, it's a bug actually, sorry if this led to some confusion
