Its very clear what it means. Its not at all clear that it is a useful
thing to point to.

This is likely to result in pushback because implementors don't like
implementing things that can be done but have no use.

There isn't a conflict, in that application/rdf+xml can add its fragid
syntax to the +xml fragid syntax. There may be a conflict in
implementors saying they don't want to add the +xml fragid syntax. Or
there might be support from implementors who like to have a uniform
fragid syntax in a multinamespace, comound documents scenario.
