Hi Wendell,

I agree with every statement in your message.

At the same time, I believe, that the OP wouldn't have posted the
question in case he was allowed to use XSLT 2 -- as it is obvious that
in XSLT 2 one should use the <xsl:for-each-group> instruction.

In the unlikely case that someone is using XSLT 2 and still trying to
use keys for grouping, this most probably means that such person isn't
aware of the existence of the <xsl:for-each-group> instruction.
