Use an XMLListCollection with a filterFunction.
Thank you for that pointer. The filterFunction was a bit tricky, I had to "store away" the value of the key attribute for the 3rd node and the 7th node in the slider, then filter the XMLList on "all values of the key attribute between the 3rd and 7th node, inclusive).
