OK.  It wasn't obvious to me whether that was because people hadn't considered 
matching against disconnected subtrees or whether they'd considered it and 
rejected it.  I should note that it's not obvious what document "the document" 
is here, by the way...

None of which much affects my initial question about DocumentFragment.
