Maybe I'm just dense, but I don't understand what you mean by that last
sentence, or what leads you to believe that is what's happening.

Nor do I understand what it means for a template result to be appended "as
a following-sibling of the source-tree-context-node." Once a result tree
fragment is generated, it has no relationship to nodes in the source tree,
does it?

One of us is confused here (or maybe both :-) . Are your statements based
on observing the results of your transforms, or something you read, or ...?

If you could provide a little more detail, it would be very helpful to
whoever is confused.
