Exactly. Thanks a lot for an xslt-style code snipplet and the link to the
positional grouping paper.

Meanwhile, I've remembered a more demonstrative example then h1/p

"element(image), element(caption), element(table[some condition])"

an image with the caption and a legend table is to be grouped. In my
xslt stylesheets, the grouping code is far away from readability and
maintainability. That's why I'm looking for a better approach.
