I think, Dimitre is somewhat right. A pure push processing, is natural
without modes and namespace qualification in select/match patterns.

If we add modes and namespaces to templates, then we deviate from
natural template processing, which is built into XSLT engine, and that
makes it pull processing (either complete pull, or partial pull).

I think, if there is only one template, and that has a mode, then it's
same as a template without a mode (and, that's not a correct design
according to me! Here a template, defined with a mode is redundant
design. But I think, you just specified this as an example, and not a
desirable solution!). And the example you've given above is push
according to me (since there is only one template, with a mode).
