Again, let's make that

I don't understand the question. If, by "root node" you mean
an XPath node, then by the time you have one of those, you're
already past the media type.

For RDF/XML, the spec says:

"If an information resource IR is represented by a conforming RDF/XML
document[RDFX], then the RDF graph represented by that document is a
GRDDL result of IR"
 -- http://www.w3.org/2004/01/rdxh/spec

and for XML, it likewise just says "If an information resource IR is
represented by an XML document with an XPath root node R".

If there are cases this doesn't specify clearly enough, please
point them out in some detail.
