i really think that if you define demand as "people are implementing javascript
libraries to emulate this feature", more or less by definition this cannot
happen for a scenario like fragment identifiers.

and there is "demand" (more loosly defined) for HTML being a better document
format. tons of PDF (as terribly bad as it is as a document format) are still
being produced because of basic HTML problems, such as not printing very well,
or not not being able to point to document parts (which in PDF can be done by
pointing to a page; even PDF had fragment identifiers for this). CSS is (very
very slowly) going in that direction with the advanced layout and paged media
modules. better fragment identification would be another piece in that puzzle.
