Whilst I very very rarely use xsl:apply-imports, there is a sense of it being slighty misnamed I agree.

Neither xsl:next-match nor xsl:apply-imports are the same as xsl:apply-templates, which changes the context focus to (most usually) somewhere else. Both of them have some equivalence to super() in OO (differing of course in the scope from when the super() is sought) which you wouldn't expect to change 'this' for, would you?
