How about for-each-groups?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="";
xmlns:xs=""; exclude-result-prefixes="xs"
B <xsl:template match="chapter">
B B <xsl:result-document href="quatro-01-out.xml">
B B B <xsl:copy>
B B B B <xsl:for-each-group select="*" group-ending-with="section">
B B B B B <xsl:if test="position() = 1">
B B B B B B <xsl:copy-of select="current-group()"/>
B B B B B </xsl:if>
B B B B </xsl:for-each-group>
B B B </xsl:copy>
B B </xsl:result-document>
B </xsl:template>
output<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

I've always regretted that we don't have operators "until"
"until-and-including". But with 3.0 you can implement them as

declare function until-and-including ($seq, $condition) {
B  head($seq), until-and-including(tail($seq)[$condition(head($seq))],
return up-to-and-including(*, function($x){ boolean(self::section) }
