As far as I can see, it is only the leaf nodes that should be countet.
That is, only a, bb, ccc and dd elements.

There was a post within a month time that had the same kind of problem
- going recursively through the nodes getting a grouped output like
the one that you try getting. I could not find the thread - I think
David Carlisle answered with a solution.

I would - as Andrew said - split it into two problems: one, getting
the xml in the required format, two: as simple transformation into the
csv that you want.
