In biology, the descendants of a common ancestor are a clade.  ("An
ancestor and all its descendants", usually.)

"Clade" comes from ancient Greek for "branch".

I don't see "branch" as a confusing terms for this concept; "x and y are
in the same branch".

Isn't this is the sliding versus tumbling windows distinction out of
XQuery 3.0?.

If it is, presumptively there's some XSLT 3.0 equivalent language
already?
