Dear Stuart,

I suspect what follows will be mostly unsatisfying.  The short is: on the whole, there's a lot of work to be done to address the type of general relations/specifity you are asking about.  In large part this is because your examples bring us very close to the "aggregates" issue.

I want to try to answer some of your questions, but I want to start with the last one, because it is so easy.  As for the following answers, they are hugely dependent on my understanding the question in the first place, and I felt those were a little unclear at times.

> (e) why does the definition from page 10 of the report not appear
> on http://bibframe.org/vocab/Instance.html Has the definition changed?
-- It's not different.  In fact, the definition at bibframe.org is virtually a word-for-word copy from the document.  It is, however, truncated to only the absolute essence at bibframe.org.  As we continue to update the vocabulary, we'll likely add more complete and encompassing definitions.

> (a) what is the status in the bibframe model
> of http://archive.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/frbr_current3.htm ?
-- The conceptual notion of the "Final report" would be a BIBFRAME Work (with IFLA as the creator).  This page - http://archive.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/frbr_current_toc.htm - which is basically the landing page for the *entire* report would be an Instance of that Work.  However, the page you direct to in your question is not the same as the link I provided.  Your link is to a distinct chapter of that Work.  One option for the model would be to create a BIBFRAME Work resource for the chapter, which, being a BIBFRAME Work, would have an Instance (represented by your link).  There would be a defined relationship between the BIBFRAME Work for the entire report to the BIBFRAME Work for Chapter 3.  We've been experimenting with this idea.  

> (b) what is the status in the bibframe model
> of http://archive.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/fig3-1.jpg ?
-- Personally, I think this could be more granular a level of cataloging than we'll be feasible for most (time and money), but it could be treated in the same fashion.  The image could be a BIBFRAME Work (with its own Instance) and be associated with a Work resource of the chapter it is from. 

> (c) shouldn't the HTML Instance be defined as

-- unionOf, though lacking a definition at bibframe.org, comes from a pre-defined relationship in MARC used mainly (if not exclusively) for serials.  It is too early to tell whether it has such a narrow use in the future, but it is meant to capture the notion that "This Work is the product of a merger of these two other Works."  I believe what you are trying to do is something completely different.  And, FWIW, the attempt to sensibly record how all the parts of an HTML document logically fit together is not something we're focused on.

Cordially,
Kevin
