[xsl] Sibling axis and as="element()"

Given this XML:

<xsl:variable name="foo" as="element(foo)+">

and this bit of XSLT:

<xsl:for-each select="$foo">
 <xsl:value-of select="count(preceding-sibling::*)"/>

I get this result:


I seem to remember David C mentioning something about using
as="element()" means the elements are no longer siblings... but I
can't find anything about it now.

Is this the case? Do parentless trees lose their axes?
