Indeed, that’s the right change, because ‘find-down’ returns nodes that
matches the predicate, *including* N itself (and yes, it could use some

Now, there were other subtleties; see commit 3d6d887.  I’ve tested with
both single-file and multiple-file documents, and it seems to work.
You’re welcome to double-check, as usual.  :-)

It would be nice to have test cases for that, but I’m not sure how to
