I think that is quite explicit already, but a reminder seems to be in
order, I've certainly complained about this in a number of registrations
and encountered a number people, and implementations, that had bizarre
ideas about fragment identifiers being specific to individual schemes.

The general idea would be to say something like URIs are


and schemes can only constrain the first two components. It might be a
good idea to ask people who got this wrong in the past what could be
done to avoid their confusion.
