change to the way the HTML spec specifies it (I wasn't aware that had
changed to support media fragments - thanks for pointing it out).

Yes, that makes sense.

I'm happy to do it the way you suggest. I haven't been a huge user of
media fragments (using existing implementations like YouTube's URL

people want to use it.
