The good news is that it's working nicely in SAXON now "in the lab". It's
even legal, I do it using an extension function saxon:nodeset that converts
a result tree fragment to a nodeset (actually, to a document node, so that
all the navigation works cleanly). I discovered to my own surprise that it
even creates indexes for any relevant keys!

The bad news is that I'm not sure when the next SAXON release will be,
there's a lot of work to do on documentation and testing before I can ship a
new version.
