This does not address my concerns, for two reasons:

1)  From this text, I can't tell what the SVG document fragment is in the 
original markup I sent in my original comment.

2)  The third paragraph here sounds like a restriction on authors.  If an author 
screws up and creates nested 'svg' elements, what will the SVG document fragment 
be?  It still needs to be well-defined for the parts of the spec that reference 
it to make sense....
