Dear XSL editors,

In the XSLT WD of 21 Apr 1999 section 4.1 states, that the root node
"has a single child which is the element node for the document element
of the document". 

What about other parts of the document, such as comments and processing
instructions in the prolog? I would expect these to be separate children
of the root node. Or are they completely omitted (why?).

What about the XML declaration?
