You clearly have a processing model in mind that makes this behavior seem strange, but honestly I don't know what you find strange here. When you are using push model (that is template matching) then essentially you are executing the _document_ and each node in the document fires code that is defined in a matching template. So saying that changing the template for Name changes the processing at arbitrary points in the process, whenever <Name> appears is like saying that if you change a C program and change the definition of a function doname(..) then the processing changes whever the function doname iis called, and without knowing where or if that function is called, you don't know what effect changing the function will have. This is all true, but it's not surprising, and not particular to xslt.
