If we modify [1], then yes, "#t=10" could be valid. But this is not 
currently allowed.

In the case of hand-generated media fragment URI only. You can also 
expect that in most of the cases, users will 'click' on media fragments 
URI or have them generated using authoring tools.

Personally, from my common sense: "#t=10" refers to a time point, and 
not to an interval while "#t=10," seems more accurate.
