Possibly confusing description in FCS overview

In the section "Overview of the fcs" is a paragraph that begins
thusly:

	The content of the f:fcs element shall be a subtree [...] from
	the parent document's namespace.

That sentence and the one following it could be misread (I believe) as
requiring that an FCS be a complete subtree in the original XML
document (disallowing the omission of any descendants of that
subtree's root).  Of course, the examples and the Note at the
beginning of that section helped clarify the issue.
