That's a very good idea: they could have relativeURI, absoluteURI, and
fragURI, and then make anyURI a union of the three (and should have done so
in the first place).

Obviously we've discussed the fragments-identify-resources issue before. I
think I summed up basically everything that I want to say on the issue at:-
Unless you have anything to add to that which you didn't at the time, I
think that the matter is settled: there is nothing in specification or
implementation that necessarily restricts the semantics derived from the
interpretation of fragment identifiers, except when you get to the media
type specifications, which do as they shall.
