I asked

    No, XSLT 2.0 (and XQuery) allow you to create free-standing 

Tweaking to generate elements
    <xsl:function name="my:ns" as="node-set()">
      <xsl:param name="p"/>
      <xsl:element name="a" select="{$p+1}"/>
      <xsl:element name="b" select="{$p+2}"/> </xsl:function>

So, asking the converse, i.e. how to create, under xslt 2.0,
a node-set *with* a document node, does the (modified) function above
do that? Or is this another  nodeset without a document node?

And maybe more importantly, under what circumstances *must* a node-set
have a document node?
