apologies, rereading and now grok your problem ...

this is quickly becoming an 'old chestnut' with XProc and the solution
is not ideal e.g. you can simply wrap your results in xslt, to make
sure you have a proper xml document then select children when you need
to compose them.

Dealing with non-xml (or near xml for that matter) is a 'front burner'
issue for XProc vnext ... we don't want to provide or condone black
magic approach and are now thinking things through to do it properly.

Please feel free to add to the discussion.
