I feel that if a browser can check the entries in its history to compare
them to an URI just to tell if its been there before, it should be able
to tell if an URI is equal (enough) to the current URI

If the URI in the anchor is relative then it shouldn't give too much
problems with mirrored sites as long as they use the same structure. If
the URI is absolute then it indeed poses a problem.
