Yeah, I am almost positive that I've brought it up before though it
might have been offlist to you or Tab... Also FWIW this is essentially
the use case I cited when asking the questions that led to this
thread... It's a really common case that pages are assembled with
document fragments fetched from elsewhere... It would be difficult,
implausible to manage web components for those use cases in a
significant system/app by placing link references in head.  It would
be really nice if we had some advice at least for handling that if not
a wholly spec'ed solution IMO.
