There are many that simply say the reference must be legal, and I don't
see how this is consistent with Web Architecture, clearly "Agents that
recover from error by making a choice without the user's consent are not
acting on the user's behalf." AWWW also notes

  In case three, behavior by the receiving agent should vary depending
  on whether the negotiated format defines fragment identifier
  semantics. When a received data format does not define fragment
  identifier semantics, the agent should not perform silent error
  recovery unless the user has given consent; see [CUAP] for additional
  suggested agent behavior in this case.

I could not find a requirement in XLink 1.1 that corresponds to this.
Is XLink 1.1 not in line with the Architecture of the World Wide Web?
