No, I presumed that the results must effectively be compatible with 2004 spec using c14n. I know of no implementations available to me of the new XQuery and XSLT. Even if the results are off, these should be good test cases. I'm happy to tweet the results to suit the actual results,

IMO, and solution must preserve namespaces and language and not mess up included definitions. I presume that the definitions don't need to be minimal (I.e., only limited to those actually used in the fragment). This leaves expansion of self-closing elements, which is entirely speculative.

I'll look through the relevant specs further myself; perhaps they have their own test suite?
