Control on document fragment before inserted into the document

Is it possible to create a can-control using a document fragment as element before it’s inserted into the document?
It appears not so. I don’t get any error messages, but none of the event handlers on {element} are triggered.

I guess not. Acoording the documentation of can-control it needs an HTMLElement as parameter, not a document-fragment. Subtle difference

Hey @Arjen_Haayman, thanks for posting. I filed an issue that could help in the future:
