No, it's not in Xpath 2 either. It's an XSLT-supplied function only
available in XSLT implementations of XPath (both versions 1 and 2)
It wouldn't do what you want actually, as it returns the position of the
node at the start of the expression evaluation, which is probably / with
position 1 in this case.

Almost certainly any host language that allows you to call xpath will
allow you to bind variables, so the following isn't needed, but it is, I
think, what you asked for.
