Section 2.6 of sXBL, import, states:

If there is a fragment identifier, it imports all the definition 
elements in the subtree designated by that fragment identifier. 
Otherwise, it imports all the definition elements in the binding document.

However, the use of fragment identifiers for XML documents is very 
shaky. RFC 3023 does not assign any fragment identifier syntax we can 
rely on. If a special MIME type and associated fragment identifier 
syntax could be registered specifically for sXBL documents, you might be 
able to work around this. However, it is necessary to tread very 
carefully here, and not assume that a fragment ID is necessarily 
meaningful in this context.
