This is fixed in the release (10018) of libxslt which I am using right

Finally a word to say that even though the preceding-sibling is a
"reverse" axis, a copy-of or apply-templates on "preceding-sibling::*"
would take the nodes by document order: the "reverse order" property
only affects the position -as returned by the "position()" function- of
the nodes, not their physical position in the node set...

What I don't find obvious in the recs is why this "reverse order"
property is lost when you assign the node set "preceding-sibling::*" to
a variable, but all the XSLT processors seem to behave consistently in
this respect.

See you in San Diego.
