The simple answer is yes. But it's not quite as simple as that, because of
transitivity problems: see erratum E44


In fact distinct-values() provides rules for partitioning a set of atomic
values into groups that, except in edge cases, satisfy the principle that all
the values in a single group are equal, while the values found in one group are
not-equal to the values found in another group. xsl:for-each-group uses the
same rules (but not by reference), and XQuery 1.1 grouping should do likewise.
