That's good news indeed.

While I like your idea to get ampersand-segmented fragment expansion
properly specified, I was wondering whether it is indeed the standard
way to do it. I did very limited research, but couldn't find Web
applications using it (probably due to my limited research). I found a
couple of Web apps using something like fragment "paths"  la
#/some/encoded/state. Do you have representative pointers?

I would love to see it spec'ed, simply, wanted to see who supports it first.
