Re: [xsl] Can code in XSLT 3 check whether it is dealing with a streamed or a grounded node?

Good question, and I suspect the answer is no.

If you "try/catch" something that would fail on a streamed node, the chances 
are you'll get a static error saying the code isn't streamable.

I wonder whether, in XSLT 3 with (the option of) streaming, a function
or template can check/introspect if it is dealing with a streamed node
or a grounded node.

For instance, depending on how an XSLT stylesheet is executed the
initial match selection might be streamed (e.g. StreamSource in
Java/Saxon API) or grounded (XdmNode in Java/Saxon API), can the
stylesheet code check whether it is dealing with a streamed or with a
grounded node?
