Un-nesting elements in XSLT 2.0

I've got a problem that I've been pondering over and I'm sure there's a
pattern for doing this.
I have a hierarchical structure that I need to break out, but things seem to
get confusing when mixed content models come into play.


      This is some above image text<sup>See footnote 1</sup>
   <image src="image1.gif" alternative="My Image"/>
       This is some text in between the image and table.
       Some more text to finish the paragraph off.

I need to convert this into the following:

<p>This is some above image text <sup>See footnote 1</sup></p>
<img src="image1.gif alt="My Image"/>
<p>This is some text in between the image and table.</p>
<p>Some more text to finish the paragraph off.</p>

The way that you'd want to write your XSL would be something like:

<xsl:template match="para">
       <xsl:apply-templates />

<xsl:template match="image">

but of course that is non-sensical.

What is the easiest and/or most efficient way to do this in XSLT 2.0?
