Consider the sequence constructor after removing any xsl:on-[non]-empty
instructions. Apply the rules for constructing complex content, ignoring any
error conditions. If the result is empty content, then on-empty fires (and if
not, then on-non-empty fires).

The practical difference from the current rules is that some additional
constructs are considered empty - for example, a zero-length string (but not if
there are adjacent zero-length strings which would cause separators to be
