The phrases
    each item Ni (i=1..k)
    If Ni is not a node,
indicate that it doesn't have to be a node, so in the phrase
    let N1, N2, ..., Nk be the sequence of nodes that UnionExpr evaluates to
"nodes" should presumably be changed to "items".

Note that you could say something like
    let N1, N2, ..., Nk be the nodes in the sequence of items
    that UnionExpr evaluates to
and then subsequently know that Ni is a node.

"omits each item Ni (i=1..k) that is not Ij"
    The "that is not Ij" part doesn't agree with fts:reconstruct.
    I think fts:reconstruct's interpretation is less surprising.

"If Ni is not a node, it is ignored, as "is" does not apply to non-nodes."
    The second part is kind of a non-sequitur. I'm guessing you're talking
    about XQuery's "is" operator, but there isn't a use of it nearby. And 
    even if there were, it wouldn't really explain much. I suggest just 
    ending the sentence at "is ignored".

Hm. Well, looking at 5.2.13 and 5.2.14, it seems that FTIgnoreOption and
Scoring are about equivalent in their core-ness, but that doesn't prevent 2.3
Score Variables from being close to section 2.2.

Look at it this way: syntactically, FTIgnoreOption is not part of FTSelection,
it's part of FTContainsExpr. So [3.7 Ignore Option] doesn't belong in [3
Full-Text Selections], it belongs in [2.2 Full-Text Contains Expression].
