I've now clarified this in the document. The online document is updated. In
the introduction, I now mention following
"By repetition logic, we mean repeated execution of a block of code,
similar in concept to a procedural language loop (for e.g the C languagebs
bforb loop)"

I went by, following definitions in XSLT 3.0 spec

That could be debatable. The xsl:apply-templates instruction has a "select"
attribute (which computes to a sequence of items). Theoretically, for each
item in an input sequence, a different template rule may be selected.
That's not repetition I believe.
