This root node persists even after using ext:node-set(). Is
that correct behavior?

So my script should be saying 'test=$f/*' or 'count($f/*) > 0'?
No, I can't inspect an RTF, so I'd have to convert it to a
node-set first and then test it.
It is certainly more convenient to test the variable directly,
but if that's not what the spec says, I'll close the bug and
use the above tests instead.
