lately I have seen some people using  *|@*|text() as matching pattern to
achieve an identity transform. Does this actually do the same as @*|node()
? I wasn't quite sure. If yes, is there any (dis-)advantage using it?

"node()" would match element nodes, text nodes, comment nodes, processing instruction nodes. If you only use "*|text()" instead of "node()" then you are excluding comment nodes and processing instruction nodes.
