I'm a bit inclined to make xsl:for-each-group/@group-by streamable under the
same conditions as xsl:for-each-group/@group-adjacent. This would be consistent
with our approach to distinct-values().

Otherwise there is no convenient way to do something like

<xsl:for-each-group select="*" group-by="colour"
  bind-group="g" bind-grouping-key="k">
  <a colour="{$k}" count="{count($g)}"/>

which is streamable for all practical purposes (it needs memory proportional to
the number of groups, which in many cases will be constant memory independent
of the size of the population).

In essence this is the same as xsl:fork, except the number of "prongs" in the
fork is not fixed statically by the stylesheet author, but instead is
one-per-group based on the number of distinct grouping key values found in the
