Suppose I wanted to stop at a given node or after a certain number of ancestors. What would I do to tweak your original solution?

It depends on your criteria. It can get a bit tricky since this is a reverse axis, so e.g. select="ancestor-or-self::*[position &lt; last()] gets all but the document element (the last of the ancestor elements going up).

select="ancestor::*[position &lt;= 3] gets your first three ancestors (but not your context node).
