  Both. It's insane because initially the XSLT data model did NOT
allow that kind of constructs. It get possible only via the use of
the node-set extension and this create a huge amount of technical 

  a template matching DIRTREE[d][f] means it matches all the nodes
//DIRTREE[d][f] in the current document. the node set has no document
or if it has a document it is not reachable from the node itself.

  Log the bug please, but understand that the use and abuse of the
node-set extension was not initially part of the XSLT model.
