i was not as clear here as i should have been: rfs 3987 just says there is a
random string after the '#'. a media type then defines additional syntax
constraints (an xml name for html4, the more complicated
keyword/parenthesis-based syntax of xpointer, something like page=42 for PDF)
and defines semantics. for rfc 3987, the fragment identifier is totally opaque,
it is not a name or an @id or anything, it is just a string.
