I don't know if I would agree with that.  I'm sure there'd be situations
where you want a binding document to have some gradients defined (for
example) that are used by all the shadow trees for a particular binding,
and you want to use a URI reference that contains only a fragment
identifier.  It would be a bit messy to have to include the gradient
element in each generated shadow tree.
