I'm not really sure what you're after here, for the following reasons:
$tail is a variable, which is assigned to once, and may never be given
another value, and thus will never change.
//A will also never change - the set of all A nodes in the source
document will always be the the same set.
Could you please give an example of the recursion process you have in
mind, and we may be able to help more.
