I agree, with one small addition: instinctively I think it's worth documenting 
that the sequence *might* be empty--and that's what the original text was 
attempting to do.  The result will always be a sequence, and it may be an empty 

So I think the suggested rewording is great, but if we could add the 
"potentially empty" to the sentence, that'd be even better:

"The result represents a potentially empty sequence of XML nodes or values."

Just a gut feeling, though...
