Cannot use .append() or .appendTo() with document fragments

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: manipulation Version: 1.6.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

As the title states: trying to append() a document fragment OR trying to appendTo() onto a document fragment fails.

The fragment will not have any children in the example below:

var frag = document.createDocumentFragment(),
    elem = document.createElement('div');
/* Comment out 2 out of 3 to test each case separately */

Is that something we want to fix? Fragments are nodeType 11 and all manipulation is revolved around nodeType being 1.

@dmethvin & @timmywil - I vote "invalid use case".

resolution: → wontfix
status: openclosed

Adding a +1 to rwaldron's vote to mark this as an invalid use case. As timmywil appears to side with this not being behaviour that should be fixed, I'll be closing as wontfix.

If another member of the team wishes to change this resolution, please feel free to.
