I hope we're not just repeating things over the back fence, but....

That makes sense. My understanding is that I'm picking up the context of
the nodes in the for-each and comparing the first nodes of each group
matching the respective dataIds (there are multiple groups of nodes each
with a different dataId). This may be a ambiguity or even bug, the key
reference should probably make it explicit?
It's not the key() function that's reducing it to a single node, it's the
generate-id() function you are running on the nodes returned by key(). As in:
"The generate-id function returns a string that uniquely identifies the
node in the argument node-set that is first in document order." [XSLT 12.4]
No ambiguity there. Beyond this, I think Tom S. explained it.
But I'm confused not having the examples in front of me. Would you be able
to snip them out (again) and recapitulate the question if I'm not getting
what you're asking?
