This is the standard behavior in all browsers, right? However, I cannot find where it has ever been written ... Why would this be different for media resources?

that last sentence again seems to indicate that the html-folks assume that specifying the behaviour of fragments in an HTML context is the responsibility of whoever defines the URL format. This strikes me as counter-intuitive, as I've already explained in response to the mail about MF-semantics.

As you're probably our closest link to the HTML group: could you explain the rationale behind this?
