If a schema can be used to build out a form, or, if there is a common schema is used across multiple forms, is there a need for fragments?

Fragments are used for repeating parts of forms that exist amoung multiple forms (for example an address block or a company header). The data in the fragment may still be represented in the schema but you do not create a schema specifically for a fragment. This way the fragment can be created once and referenced in many other forms. The binding on the fragment cannot be changed once it is added to the final form so binding should be relative and not absolute.
