Yes. This is true that all is collection. But collections like arrays can be 
iterated to fetch the data you need. Testing one condition can return one 
element collection. But if you have repeated sub-nodes the same test condition 
there must be organized some iterator to distinguish the needed one.

Am I right? Or where is my misunderstanding?
