We had already long discussion regarding the use of a hash vs query. You 
can read [1] that tentatively summarizes all the discussion we had 
during telecon and f2f. The current position of the group is that the 
Media Fragment URI spec might use both ... but for different purpose:
   - #: to take a fragment of a media resource, the context is saved, 
i.e., the User will see that there might be some bits before and after a 
video sequence he is playing.
   - ?: to create a new resource, extracted from a resource, the context 
is lost.
Cheers!
