http://www.example.com/football.movie#t=10,20&action=track is NOT valid 
according to the ABNF syntax, i.e. the syntax does to allow to produce 
such a media fragment.

I understand than Philip is arguing for more than just the ABNF grammar 
in the normative part for handling such cases in an interoperable way 
while I understand that Yves is stating that the ABNF syntax and a 
non-dummy implementation for parsing it will be enough.
