Saxon doesn't do it (at present) because of the cost and complexity of (a) sorting nodes into document order when they don't contain a serial number, (b) skipping over and counting nodes correctly in the presence of things such as entity reference nodes, CDATA nodes, and unnormalized text nodes, and (c) dealing with the multitude of ways that the DOM allows namespace nodes to be (or not be) represented.
