[xsl] Template match priority

Lets see, do I understand this correctly?

A template match of * out-weighs a template match of some named node?  IE.,

<xsl:template match="*">
  <!-- i win -->
</xsl:template/>

<xsl:template match="my_node">
  <!-- i'm a loser baby -->
</xsl:template match


From: http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt/#conflict

  If the pattern has the form NCName:* preceded by a
ChildOrAttributeAxisSpecifier, then the priority is -0.25.
  Otherwise, if the pattern consists of just a NodeTest preceded by a
ChildOrAttributeAxisSpecifier, then the priority is -0.5.

I would think it the other way, a * having a lesser default priority.

Karl..
