You don't have any template to match the root of the document, so the
processor applies its built-in templates.  You can avoid this by adding
another template like this one after the xsl:stylesheet element:

<xsl:template match='/OBFExtract'>
    <xsl:apply-templates select='DL'/>

Now the stylesheet acts as expected.
