hello everybody.

about two weeks ago, i posted a short message about the idea to improve 
fragment identifiers in html; the original message can be found here:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2008May/0509.html

basically, i proposed to extend html's fragment identification method by 
allowing to identify fragments without an @id.

nobody replied, so apparently this idea is not met with great 
enthusiasm. however, i still think this could be useful, and i would be 
grateful to get some feedback about this idea. most importantly, i am 
wondering whether people think this is a bad idea and should not be 
done, or whether people think this simply would not be implemented 
and/or useful. so i don't expect anybody to suddenly become enthusiastic 
about this idea, but just hearing some of the reasons for the lack of 
enthusiasm would be interesting as well.

thanks and kind regards,
