It seems an odd requirement (I've never needed to process a sequence
in this way) - maybe you could define the requirements a little more

Alternatively - if you are going to process nodes as strings anyway -
convert them to an atomic value when you create the sequence:

(//Book/Author/xs:string(.), 1, 2, 3)
