Like it or not, the name of the "#foo" thing at the end
of a URL is called a "fragment identifier". There is
really nothing wrong with the name, as it is an identifier
for a fragment within an HTML document.
You can futz about with names all you like. The fragment
identifier is entrenched in Web-speak. There is no getting
around that. Trying to rename it will only create confusion
for the large base of HTML users.
