Mark, I think you misinterpreted the XML Fragment Interchange spec.
It suggest a way to provide context information about a fragment
of an existing document.  I was talking about some means to specify
and constrain where a standalone fragment (meaning that it is not a
complete document and is also not part of another document) may be
used and what context information is needed to use it.
