Why is this a problem?  Why does this hypothetical Facebook not use fragment identifiers? Do they have to? Will they always be stuck with that? What will Facebook look like in three years? 

Sorry, there are just too many hypotheticals in your question to make it possible to give any clear answer. There are many simple solutions to their problem. They could use redirects for example, if they don't like # urls. 

If they are interested in WebID, perhaps we should invite them directly, then we could answer their questions with more context....
