The WebID protocol should not encourage a particular pattern for mintings
URI, who knows what will be fashionable in 2 years? what if TAG or some
other group comes up with a resolution on the http-range14 debate? I'm not
opposed to using #frag in non-normative examples in the spec, or in some
kind of primer, but IMO for future proofing, the protocol should not be
tied to #frag URIs or any other pattern.

 but does not prevent or preclude any dereferencable http URI, frag or
