Excluding the use of xsl:result-document, is the result of an XSLT

The spec talks about result trees, but couldn't figure out if the tree
is always rooted at a document-node() or if a tree rooted at an
element() is allowed.

Hm - it is also possible to produce a sequence of "result-trees".  I
guess each one would be a document-node(), or be wrapped in one:

<xsl:template match="/">
   <xsl:copy-of select="*" />
   <xsl:copy-of select="*" />

would produce a sequence of two documents, as I understand it


No. Each of the copy-of would copy a sequence of element nodes, the template will make an implicit (single) document node to hold the combined sequence of element nodes.
