--- Comment #4 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
Noted in discussion:

(a) this is a new feature to introduce at a late stage and because of the
interaction with the environment there's a lot of scope for quibbling about the
exact spec; the chance of getting it right first time is small.

(b) doc() currently allows a fragment id and defines no semantics for it.
Almost any attempt to define semantics for it would cause a compatibility
problem for some implementations (or for their users...)

(c) unparsed-text() currently disallows a fragment id. If we were to allow it,
we would probably have to leave the semantics implementation-defined if we want
similar behaviour to doc(). It's not clear that's desirable.
