It might not help people that the context sensitive help description
of the text() function that for example one reads in oxygen is

    "text() as node(). The text node"...

It would prevent misunderstanding if it read something like..

"text() as node(). The sequence of text nodes descending from the
context element. Only use it if you need to process the text node
children and element children of a mixed-content element
