The XSL and XQuery WGs discussed this and decided to add a definition of "root
node" (even though the term is used in its normal meaning in the context of
"tree structures"). Proposed text:

[Definition: The topmost node of a tree is called the root node.]

Note: Thus the root node is merely a designator, based on position,
for one of the nodes in the tree without implying what kind of
a node it is.
In the XPath 1.0 datamodel the root node was a kind of node.
