   Another short answer... Given that the adsline1 element is
required, so you know there will always be something for that, why
don't you have the rule for adsline1 just do (process-children) to
output its contents, then have the rules for all the other elements do
a concatenation of a comma and the contents of the element.  In other
words, make each element responsible for separating itself from the
last one.  That way, the separator only gets generated as needed.
   Feel free to slap me if I'm missing something and oversimplifying
this (it's early :).
