LC comment: clarify situation around document fragments containing RDFa

To: RDFa <public-rdf-in-xhtml-tf@w3.org>

In many cases, such as clipboard operations, fragments of XHTML+RDFa 
might be passed around, in which case valuable triples still might be 
extracted from the fragment. Of course, there will always be potential 
cases where the process of extracting the fragment "breaks" the triple 
(or relies on additional context before being processed). But there will 
also be cases where complete triples remain intact in the fragment.

If the RDFa spec doesn't describe what to do in these cases, ad-hoc 
solutions might take hold without the benefit of careful discussion.

Please mention this possibility in the specification, describe normative 
behavior, and produce test cases for the behavior.

The Last Call specification specifies special handling for the <head> 
and <body> elements. Please specify processing rules and conditions that 
apply to document fragments containing RDFa, in particular for cases 
where no <head> nor <body> element would be encountered.

Thanks, -m
