You are wrong!

If it didn't care why do you make the statement about # URIs. Talk about 
URIs, even HTTP URIs, but not a style of HTTP URI. That's totally broken 
beyond repair.

Please make up your mind. You just stated that: ".. Because the 
behaviour is extremely well-defined with a #-style URI? That's (partly) 
why they exist…" .

So how do we handle other de-referencable URIs that are not so 
well-defined, to use your characterization?
