Then why not replace the xsl:for-each and xsl:if by <xsl:for-each

In fact, the whole thing could be rewritten:

<xsl:template match="/Request">
  <Elem name="Request">
     <attr n="System">
        <val s="{@System}"/>

Because a template written to match an element with local name Request in no
namespace will not match an element with local name Request in namespace
http://www.abc.com. The namespace is logically part of the element name.
