I can think of a good reason for not providing it in XSLT 1.0, because it's
not clear what the function would return. In XSLT 2.0 returning a sequence
containing the key values seems eminently reasonable, the only questions
that occur to me are about what order they should be in and whether
duplicates should be eliminated.

P.S. Welcome back, Sebastian!
