While you may be withdrawing the comment because of the scope the XML
Fragment group has set itself, we still need a way to represent multiple
fragments, whether or not the W3C considers that appropriate to the scope
of this particular working group.

Sounds like we need to get the XML streaming thread going again, and start
working out ways to represent multiple documents/fragments.  It seems like
a real need.

Is anyone interested in this issue going to be at XTech next week?  It'd be
culture shock to actually talk, I know, but that might be a good place to
get a spec for these streaming XML issues kickstarted.
