TMQL requirements 1.0.0 paragraph 3.3.8 states:

 > TMQL may define operations for constructing topic maps from the 
results of TMQL queries.

What will be part of the newly created topic map?

1. Only topics that match the TMQL query?

2. Topics that match the TMQL query AND topics
which are (directly?) associated with matching topics?

Second version would lead to a kind of fragmentation algorithm.
I wonder if fragmentation should be task of a query language.
Should it?

Maybe an answer is not given by TMQL standard but by a
TMQL implementation?
