In your counter-example, you would need to know that the text() nodes' context
(section/heading/text()) - if I were interested in such a transform I would
probably match on the heading element, which is why it's easy to miss this

The problem is when you wish to define some over-riding behaviour for text() in
general (or some other non-element node); Consider the following mode which
might deliver a list of @id and @doi values as elements:

<xsl:mode name="IDs" on-no-match="shallow-skip"/>

<xsl:template match="@id"><ID><xsl:value-of select="."/></ID></xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="@doi"><ID class="doi"><xsl:value-of

If I understand the behaviour correctly, the templates won't match anything
