Confusion about wrapping of XMLLiteral

[1] seems to indicate that a value of type XMLLiteral will always be wrapped 
in  <rdf-wrapper>, but this is not the case in example 9 [2].

On IRC I've been told what this text is trying to achieve, but:

[17:53:04] <dajobe> reagle: the C14N don't tell you how to canonicalize 
element content, only XML docs.  We need the former so have to "fake" an 
XML doc in order to define the XML C14N of the element content
[17:54:40] <reagle> dajobe, I appreciate what you are trying to do, and I'm 
familiar with the technique (used in XENC quite a lot), I just have a hard 
time coming to that understanding from that text...

Some motivation would no doubt help this text. Also,  if you gave a name to 
the actual concatenate function and made reference to that elsewhere this 
would be more clear; otherwise, it's difficult to understand as I parse the 
text which "XML document" you are referring to, which string, and which 
pair, etc.
