  Mmh, after checking '9.3, it seems I misundertood an important thing
in XSLT.  When using the content of xsl:variable, I thought a document
node was always contructed, but possibly dropped in case of @as; and as
document nodes themself satisfy node(), I thought the above will result
in a document node (that can even not have namespace nodes as

  I'm a little bit ashamed to still learn such basis ;-).  Thanks Mike!
