Your techniques can construct temporary trees containing copies of selected
nodes, but they can't create a subset of the original node-set.
It's surprising what you CAN do in a filter if you're enterprising - perhaps
you should give an example that you're having trouble with.
If necessary, there's the EXSLT func:function for this purpose.
