I couldn't find the problem with the hyperlink, it seems to be working in 
the editor's copy.

I don't really know how to make the definition clearer. The definition is 
currently exactly precise. Could you detail exactly what it is that you 
find confusing about the definition? Is it the use of the word "cloning" 
or "nodes"? Or the use of other XBL terminology like "binding" or "shadow 
content template"? Would removing these definitions (and maybe just 
having them given lower in the spec) be less confusing?

Please let me know how best to proceed.

Cheers,
