When the content of a document or element node is constructed from a 
sequence, you do not get the original sequence ever. atomic items are 
made into text nodes, and adjacent text nodes are concatenated, empty 
text nodes are dropped, attribute nodes either generate an error or are 
moved to the attributes of the element being constructed, and other 
nodes are _copied_ so have a new identity and possibly new in-scope 
namespaces, depending on settings.
