Just a point of clarification: the DOM defines a DOM document object
called DocumentFragment , it does not really give a meaning to the
general phrase "document fragment" outside the world of DOM objects,
structures, and APIs.
The XML Fragment WG is doing something in this area. See the XML
Activity Statement  for a brief mention, the WG's Requirements
Document , the WG Group page  if you are a W3C Member, and
watch xml-dev for an announcement of a first public draft of a spec
very soon now.
