Well, as the only other respondent :-). . .

You're right that RFC 3023 as it stands defines no semantics for
frag-ids for text/xml or application/xml or any of the compound
...+xml media types.

On the other hand, common practice, _very_ widely supported,
interprets barename fragids as defined in the XPointer Framework REC [1], 
that is, as you would expect, that they identify the element
information item whose ID is the given barename.  This will be made
official once RFC3023bis [2] is completed and adopted, which will be RSN I
hope.
