Re:  Preference rules for /something and /*
yes, if you look at very early drafts of xslt1 you'll see that there was
a much more complicated scheme to try to automatically infer priority
from match patterns but wisely I think they decided that no scheme that
was memorable really automatically captured a natural intuition of which
is most specific so apart from one or two really simple cases which get
special priorities, everything else gets the same priority, and any
pattern involving a / is part of "everything else".
