RE: [xml-dev] text nodes of document in XDM

OK Reading this it seems that document nodes are implicitly created in 2

1)  When using XSLT Text Serialization (which seems to be aimed at creating
a External Parsed Entity), the document node 
(is "implicitly created"  in my mind this is a "virutal" object only to make
it easier to document how serialization works, as no actualy "document node"
is in the serialization output itself).

2) When using <xsl:variable>  which is in my mind a "legacy compatibility"
issue because XSLT1.0 couldn't handle XDM Sequences in a variable so they
had to be wrapped in a document
In this case an actual in-memory XDM document node is literally created.

oh and also, in xslt whenever you use xsl:variable with content and no 
as attribute, such as
<xsl:variable name="x">hello</xsl:variable>
or use xsl:result-document (or the implicit principal result document)
