ISSUE-33 (ping-referer): spec requires non-compliant Referer header [HTML 5 spec]

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/

Raised by: Julian Reschke
On product: HTML 5 spec

The specification currently requires use of an HTTP Referer header value ("#PING") which is not allowed as per RFC2616, Section 14.36:

"The URI MUST NOT include a fragment." -- <http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-14.36>
