--- Comment #2 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
On 24 July 2014 the WG decided that the [xsl:]on-empty attribute should apply
only to literal result elements, xsl:element, and xsl:copy, and that in the
case of xsl:copy it should apply only when the node being copied is an element
node.

The reasons for this are that (a) the major use cases for on-empty are
concerned with construction of element nodes; (b) the concept of "emptiness"
for elements and for nodes such as attributes is quite different, and
overloading the concept gets messy, especially in the case of xsl:copy where
the different meanings are mixed in one instruction.
