Most people don't think of xsl:apply-templates as recursion. In the most
common usage pattern, it's only recursive if the data is recursive. If the
tree has different element names at each level, then template rules of the
style <xsl:template match="n"> invoked using <xsl:apply-templates/> are not
The original remark referred, I think, to explicit recursion.
