add attribute to node
It should add the attribute to every element, but you're relying on a very
obscure features of the spec. (Which processor are you using? Some are
better than others at implementing obscure features correctly.)

match="//*" matches exactly the same nodes as match="*", but has a higher
default priority than match="*". Therefore your first rule should always be
chosen to match element nodes. But to make things clearer, Change the first
rule to say match="*", and the second to say match="text()|@*".

(And you don't need to apply-templates to the attribute nodes, it's
overkill. Change the <xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/> to <xsl:copy-of
