I would not call this a bug, it's just another way of confirming to the 
spec. It says [1]:
"It is an error if this leaves more than one matching template rule. An 
XSLT processor may signal the error; if it does not signal the error, it 
must recover by choosing, from amongst the matching template rules that 
are left, the one that occurs last in the stylesheet."

But I don't like influencing the priority as it might break other 
stylesheets extending our ones. Not only once, but regularly. This can 
happen if we add a new template rule and have to adapt priority again. 
But probably this is not that much a matter anymore as there are already 
so many @priority's added.

I only wonder with which template it conflicts. All others have 
specified the attribute name and should so be more specific. Does this 
occur only with a specific version of Saxon? Is everybody using Saxon in 
need for such a patch?
