It is implemented in Software AG's QuiP. Here's a query that uses it:

let $a := <foo/>
let $b := <foo/>
     <one>$a == $a</one>
     <two>$a == $b</two>

Here are the results:

     <one>$a == $a</one>
     <two>$a == $b</two>

That depends a lot on the underlying implementation. If nodes in the system 
used to implement it have identity, you simply use the identity of those 
nodes. If not, you need to impose identity.

I agree.
