This was only because after the i18n transformer in the samples there is 
another XSLT that filtered out my test elements from the SAX events, so 
I didn't saw them and thought the i18n transformer can't handle mixed 
content - pure stupidity. If you need to change your XSLT simply depends 
on your sitemap and if you have another stylesheet after i18n a template 
like you posted already.
