Section 10 doesn't seem much of an advance on what we have today?
  Is this the right document to look for grouping answers?

For 11.4, I can't say I understand the collation idea,a simple
example might have helped.

In this area, the problems associated with 'I want the next
in the *sorted* order (not document order) appear not to be addressed.
Unsure if xf:value-distinct does this or not, it appears to work on
'sequences' (which I guess includes node-sets?), and determines
uniqueness by element content? Given an example
  <content>... </content>
  <other elements ....
as the 'sequence' would it sort on the concat of head, content etc,
or is that what the optional 'collation' is for?

All these 'sequences' (e.g. return value from match), will we
have the Scheme list functions to play with them :-)
