Hello,

just my personal observation and interpretation:
What a 'SVG document fragment'
is, is in general explained  here:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/CR-SVGMobile12-20060810/intro.html#TermSVGDocumentFragment

Therefore a svg element with a fragment 
identifier is not a  'SVG document fragment'.
For example the svg element itself can be
only referenced with possibility A as a fragment for
example to identify the element for a
declarative animation. But it cannot be
reused in any way within SVG Tiny 1.2 in
the same document using the fragment identifier.
Maybe it is possible to reuse it with a DTD-extension,
if available in the current document.

Other example - if you have two svg elements 
inside another xml, it is possible with possibility 
B to reference any element with a fragment identifier 
from the other svg except the other svg element itself
(take care about further restrictions about
recursive loops ...)

Best wishes
