But that is because XPointer ranges are monstrosities: not just
*here* to *there*, but from *these* to *those* where we are dealing
with arbitrarily multiplex XPath referents. For transclusion,
we need to be able to say *here* to *there* and that's all we need.

What you retrieve is the whole document; the XPointer tells you
what part of it to keep.

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all. There
are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
