Re:  Keys with duplicates should be simple
  <xsl:import href="identity.xsl"/>
  <xsl:key name="person" match="a" use="@href"/>

  <xsl:template match="person">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="a[key('person',@href)[

If it's simple I should be able to describe it simply. Here goes.

Copy all a elements that have more than one entry in the key table
indexed by their value in the href attribute.

or maybe better.......

Create a key table using the href from each a element and copy all the
entries that occur more than once in it.
