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

  <scheme>:<scheme-specific-part>#<fragment>

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.
