True. A sequence is only flat -- it cannot be nested.

We need to expect this behavior to be different for the forthcoming
array type (which of course will use other kind of brackets for
indexing) in XPath 3.1, because one of the important properties of an
array should be that it can be nested, that is, at any index position
in the array there could be another array or a sequence.
