You should also add a template

<xsl:template match="doc">
  <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="fragment"/>

to make sure that the current node list when applying templates to fragments does just consist of fragment elements so position() goes 1 2 3 otherwise with the select="node()|@*" it would also include white space text so the fragment elements would be in positions 2 4 6 and if the doc element had any attributes the position of the fragment nodes in the node set returned by "node()|@* would be increased accordingly.
You're of course absolutely right. I realised my mistake while I was pressing the send button...
