I can't see anything in the rules in 6.6.4 (Streamable templates) that
disallows the following:

<xsl:template match="*" mode="a-streamable-mode" as="xs:string">
  <xsl:sequence select="ancestor::section"/>

Clearly this isn't streamable: we can't atomize a node reached via the ancestor
axis. But the rules don't seem to say so.

We get the same issue with streamable stylesheet functions, so I propose to

The *type-adjusted posture* of a construct C with respect to a U-type T is as

* If the intersection of T with U{N} is empty (that is, if T does not permit
nodes), the posture of a call to the fn:data function with C as an operand.
(Equivalently: it is the posture computed by the general streamability rules
for a construct that has C as its only operand, with operand usage absorption).

* Otherwise, the posture of C.

In 6.6.4 Rule 3 then changes to:

3. The sweep of the sequence constructor in the body of the xsl:template
element is either motionless or consuming

4. The type-adjusted posture of the sequence constructor forming the body of
the xsl:template element, with respect to the U-type that corresponds to the
declared return type of the template (defaulting to item()*), is grounded.

These rules solve the example case because data(..) is roaming, not grounded.
