I don't understand. The fragment parsing algorithm takes an Element as its
context argument; how can it be called with anything else? That's like saying
that it can be called with a number instead of a string as its input data, or
that it can be called expecting it to return a bitmap instead of a list of
nodes.

What would the explicit delegating note be? "If other specifications use this
algorithm, they have to do it in a way that is not blatantly incompatible with
this one"? That seems... pointless.
