Re: [xsl] fallback, saxon and MSXSL

xsl:fallback inside an element is for the case when the processor does
not know how to process that element (because it's an extension or from
a later version of xslt) in your case the element is xsl:for-each
so saxon will ignore the fallback as it understands for-each.
The fact that it can't execute the xpath expression in the select
expression is a different issue and generates an xpath error not
something that is ever avoided by xsl:fallback.
