no.

yes

The sort in your example has no effect on the xsl:if test as the
preceding-sibling axis, like all axes refers to the input document not
any sorted node list.

The original poster may want the output sorted on uid in which case he
may want an xsl:sort but that hasn't beeen mentioned, and is a separate
issue to the test mentioned in the subject line.
