I got it, the problem is in that we use different DSSSL engines. Mine was
openjade, therefore the different section numbers like {0:451} vs. jade's {451},
i.e. without the leading zero. I switched to jade and kernel-hacking.tex converts fine.
The thereby generated tex code looks also differently:
{\def\Element%
{451}\def\ProcessingMode%
{title-sosofo-mode}}\#if\endNode{}\endPar{}\endSeq{}\Node%
{\def\Element%
{451}}\endNode{}\Node%
