It certainly would be standard XSLT, if you simply provide an instance of
XSLT's data model, which consists of a source tree root node that may
contain multiple element nodes, text nodes, etc.  The XQuery "ordered
forest" model of a collection, though currently quite underspecified, is
quite similar to this idea.
