3.4.4 says:

"A document element containing no alias elements signals that the document in
question has no aliases. By implication having no alias also signals that there
can be no inter-document references to it."

If an URI has a fragment-only reference, then one way to interpret it is that
it refers to something in the same model document, which invalidates the above
statement.

This depends on whether the "base URI" mechanism also applies to fragment-only
references. See bug 5171.
