Re: xslt 2.0, use case wanted.
Surely the point of specifying a starting node would be to operate on a sub-document so that in your example /part/book/index would be invisible to the XSLT processing. Your 'equivalent' syntax requires the whole document to exist in memory. No, I think that the semantics is taht given a starting node that is not the root of the document you can still traverse the entire document using the ancestor axis (or just /) to get back to the top. So the whole document is there, you just don't start at /.
