As a believer in not trying to reengineer stuff that is not broken ..
I also agree that it would be good to encourage publishers of terms in
controlled vocabularies to use a direct non-fragmenting URI. ..

 However, if a publisher did not employ this exemplary approach (to
protect their investment?) then (of course) an indirect URI must be used.
Thus for pragmatic purposes I  encourage the use of indirect identifiers
as an architectural approach.
