catch all meaning
I know that the OP meant something completely different, but probably
what seems as an appropriate  answer to the question expressed in the
title of this thread is:

   the builtin rules.

It is a good practice to have them explicitly in one's code (with the
least priority possible) and to put breakpoints on them (in a good
XSLT IDE with a debugger), whenever one gets unexpected output that no
other template is supposed to produce.

I find this meaning of "catch all" more natural and intuitive.
