Using node-sets in reverse document order?

Subject: Using node-sets in reverse document order?

The ancestor, ancestor-or-self, preceding, and preceding-sibling axes
contain nodes in reverse document order.  How is it possible to
iterate over the nodes in that order when xsl:for-each processes nodes
in document order and xsl:sort sorts on string value, not document

How can I do something like the following that will order the selected
nodes in reverse document order?

   <xsl:for-each select="from-ancestors(node())">
     <p>Element: <xsl:value-of select="qname()"/></p>
