Not so much removed, as not copied. The default behaviour (for elements
and attributes) is not to copy them to the output. If you use a minimal
stylesheet with no templates and run it on any xml file you get no
error, and get no elements in the result.

so if you want attributes in the result you need to copy them (or make
them). So in this case after making the element

<xsl:element name="{local-name()}"
you want to copy all the attributes from the source element, so add
<xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
