XSLT 2.0 has introduced a major paradigm shift from XSLT 1.0 by introducing the concept of sequences. Now everything is a sequence. Earlier everything was a node-set. I wonder what was the need of such a major change? What does sequences concept achieve that node-sets cannot? Why was it considered neccessary to introduce in XSLT 2.0? I'll appreciate if somebody could explain the rationale behind sequences..
