URIs that end in # but don't have fragment IDs

As I read RFC 2396, in a URI such as http://www.example.com/index.xml#name
the fragment identifier is "name". The sharp sign is not included in the 
fragment ID.

Section 3.1 of the XInclude CR says that fragment IDs must not be used 
in href attributes. However, is this legal?

<xi:include href="http://www.example.com/index.xml#"/>

My current reading of the spec is that this is legal. But should it be?
