I've been - perhaps lazily - assuming that the implicit RTF -> nodeset
conversion would convert any node structure into the same structure you
started with. For instance if I return a node-set of node-sets I'm
expecting this to be what the calling expression receives. Do you know
of any exceptions, or are you just being cautious?
