This was briefly mentioned in [1] and discussed earlier at the July 11, 2013
telcon [2]. The idea was to extend xsl:on-empty at least to all
node-construction instructions for reasons of usability and orthogonality. 

Other conclusions from that mail:

(a) the expression in the on-empty attribute must be type-consistent with the
instruction it appears on. For example, on an LRE the on-empty expression must
return an element or nothing.

(b) specifically on xsl:copy, the condition should be based on the emptyness of
the constructed element/document, not the emptiness of the selected

This is also relevant to related bugs bug-24142 and bug-24140.
