Thanks Michael for responding my question so quickly.
The unsupported.xml could have following XML structure:
<!--... ALL UNSUPPORTED NODES LISTED HERE ...-->
<node name="name_of_unsupported_node" xpath="xpath_to_unsupported_node"/>
The main idea here is, that when the application reads the upgraded 4.x
configuration and it shows an information dialog were it displays those
unsupported 3.x XML elements.
Does the xsl:message flush the message to std output? I don't need that, only
those output files (conf4x.xml and notsupported.xml) mentioned before.
By the way, what do you mean with "identity transform template"?

I usually put an xsl:message in the identity transform template to
tell me the otherwise unmatched element's and it's parent's names,
which of course requires that all supported elements have a matching
Which XML structure should a separate XML with the unsupported
elements have, since they might be distributed all over the source
document, I guess?
