The server doesn't see http://www.example.com/mophor#me.

"http://www.example.com/mophor#me"   means "The defined by local  
identifier 'me' in the document 'http://www.example.com/mophor#me' "

This is the web architecture.   The client strips off the '#me'  and  
acceses the dcoument
<http://www.example.com/mophor> (if it hasn't already for some other  
id in the same document).
The server sends back a document telling it about <http:// 
www.example.com/mophor#me> and maybe other things.

It is very acceptable to use "http://www.example.com/mophor#me" as a  
URI for oneself.
Recomended, in fact.  You should have one.

Mine is http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/card#i

Actually if I did it againt I would have made it
http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/card#TBL

makes it a bit clearer.
