I monitor the repo very often. :-)

Yes, but in HTML you have: <code>DocumentFragments</code> but there 
isn't any "DocumentFragments" interface in DOM(3), but there is 
"DocumentFragment" interface. So HTML code should be something like this:
.... a set of DOM <code>DocumentFragment</code>s....
.... Two <code>DocumentFragment</code>s A and B are considered equal if...

W3C policy is to avoid normative references to working drafts, to avoid situations where conforming implementations may become non-conforming when a normatively referenced work-in-progress spec changes. Exceptions are possible if there are good reasons, but AFAIK the definitions that we need from the DOM spec are fine as they are in DOM3. (RDF-WG is considering adding an HTML datatype, and in that case we'd probably reference the HTML5 Working Draft.)

Thanks, this answer my comment.
