I tend to comment these too, although not with the repeat part - be
careful, too, as in English a less-informed reader might get an
incorrect impression reinforced that for-each is a loop, rather than a
mapping operator.

Yes, an xsl:with-context-item select=.... would be clearer. Wkether
it's worth increasing the size of the language for it is a judgment
call that's a little harder, i think.
