They are both O(n^2).

What about:

<xsl:for-each-group select="$seq" group-by=".">
  <xsl:sequence select="current-group()[$i]"/.

which also scores quite well on brevity, I think - in syntax tree form, it
has 6 nodes which is the same as Dimitre's expression; and I think it rates
higher on both efficiency and clarity.
