This sounds a bit as if I might have written it, so let me expand. It's actually been quite a troublesome area, in sorting out the detailed semantics of the document-uri() function. If you're interested in the subtleties you might like to follow the discussion at http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3173 which is not yet resolved, but which I think is heading in the direction of relaxing the requirement that doc(document-uri(D)) is D must always hold.
