I hate to catch Mike out (hee :-), but when he writes:

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.

He's forgetting that when a predicate expression is reduced to a simple number (as [last()] would be), it's inferred to be shorthand for [position()=last()], so the problem isn't there. [XPath 2.4]

But of course he's correct that there's only one parent, so testing whether it's the last won't do much. (It figures Mike is right all along....)

I think the rest of what I said is okay though.
