I'm not sure that  "stringify" is a word, and perhaps more importantly, the
behaviour of on-no-match? = "stringify" is not to generate a string but rather
to copy text nodes. The difference between strings and text nodes doesn't
usually matter, but when it does matter, it confuses people, so not using a
syntax based on the word "string" would be good I think.

It's easier to criticise the current name than to suggest a new one. copy-text
perhaps.
