I haven't tried to understand your detailed logic but the
parent::c02[last()] test looks wrong. A node has exactly one parent so the
predicate [last()] is always true. You obviously don't want to select the
"last parent" because there is only one. Perhaps you want to test whether
the parent is the last child of its own parent? In that case the condition
would be parent[not(following-sibling::*)].
