Well Transfer is just qualifying the exchange, so basically your point is 
that it's the application definition that defines the meaning of the 
fragment.

Ok, so the logic is different, but if we take this approach, the logical 
way of defining fragment is along the applicative spec that will consume 
this definition. In this case, RT, as T doesn't define the application in 
RT. So it seems that the best bet is to put this fragment definition (as 
it won't be a generic one) back in RT.
