Murato,

XInclude doesn't misinterpret the frag identifiers. The frag identifiers are
indeed authoritative.  It simply that the content is viewed as a different
media type.  Kind of like Casting in programming languages.

I don't believe that the architecture of the web precludes clients
interpreting the representations in ways other than the resource owner
intended via the metadata associated with the representation.  They should
do so carefully.  And I think XInclude treads the ground carefully.

Cheers,
Dave
