I feel you.  But, I thought you were a fan of fragment ids and consider 
(slash + 303) a hack. :-)

In certain way, I think it is a mistake that how the semantics of RDF 
fragment id is used (i.e., to indicate a non-formation resource.)  It 
would be nice, for example, if another symbol, say "*", is used to 
indicate such a level of indirection.  Then, we can use the #id to 
label/name a section of the graph.  And the use of # will be more 
consistent with other XML document.

But, I guess it is a bit too late now.
