Perhaps you have already considered the following ...
$result[1 to 500]
I'm not aware of any 'built-ins' that would automatically limit the number
of nodes to return. For the most part (with the exception of xdmp:estimate)
there is also no 'quick' way to count the possible number of nodes that
could be returned. But, not all queries can leverage xdmp:estimate and you
also need to consider the impacts of your fragmentation strategy.

Subject: [XQZone General] limiting server output
Is there an approved way of setting a limit on server output? I don't want
somebody doing a //* dump on a huge database over the web for example. I'd
like to be able to limit a result sequence say to 500 or 1000 nodes or
It looks like I can count the nodes myself before returning a prescribed
subset. If that capability is built-in tho, I've missed it.
