Hi Mike,
  Thanks for your response. Please find below my further comments on this
topic.

The XDM spec states (in section, 2.1 Terminology):
1) Every node is one of the seven kinds of nodes defined in 6 Nodes. Nodes form
a tree that consists of a root node plus all the nodes that are reachable
directly or indirectly from the root node via the dm:children, dm:attributes,
and dm:namespace-nodes accessors.
2) A tree whose root node is a Document Node is referred to as a document.
3) A tree whose root node is not a Document Node is referred to as a fragment.

I think the "root node" concept in XDM is fine, and this terminology can
coexist with 7 kinds of nodes possible in XDM (which are presently defined).

But I suggest adding following definitions to the section, 2.1 Terminology.  
A tree is a logical structure which is constructed from the nodes, which
represent a document or a fragment.
The root node of the tree, is it's top most node, which could be a document
node, or it can be the root node of a fragment.

This will define the concept of root node unambiguously.

Regards,
Mukul
