position() returns the position of the current node in the current node
list. The parent of the current node is not generally a member of the
current node list, therefore it does not have a position(). In fact, it is
meaningless to talk of the position() of any node other than the current
node. What you could determine is its <xsl:number>, which is not the same
thing at all.
