   Substituting (current-root) for (current-node) in the above should
do the trick (though, you'll probably need to quote "date" at the end,
   Alternatively, you might try:
	(process-node-list (select-elements
                             (descendants (current-root))
                             '(FRONTMATTER DATE)))
which would ensure you only get a <date> inside of <frontmatter>,
though it doesn't ensure that the <frontmatter> is just one level
down.  Substituting your original (children) calls would fix that.
