Gregor, 

Good catch. But why did you exclude the option of letting the content be
mixed? In Boyer's examples of Transforms, the content model of the Transform
document is obviously not an element.

        <Transform Algorithm="&XPath;"> 
        descendant-or-self::node()[not(self::Id)]</Transform> 
        </Transforms> 

Consequently, I've changed the content model to mixed for the time being.
