For example, the following is a complete xslt stylesheet that will
convert your <g><e>... input documemt to a series of record elements
with all attributes copied.

<records xsl:version="1.0"
<xsl:for-each select="//e">
<xsl:element name="{ancestor-or-self::*[@ename][1]/@ename}">
   select="ancestor-or-self::*/@*[not(name()='ename')] |

Going in the reverse direction isn't a lot more complicated.
