2.0 doesn't have node sets at all.

You mean generate a temporary tree with a document node as root, 
that happens automatically most of the time (as in xslt 1) as if you
xsl:copy-of (for example) an element into a variable then a document
node will be formed automatically to contain it. If you use the as="..."
and specify some type other than document node then this automatc
creation of document nodes is supressed.
