Note to myself: incorrect.

  Link: </bar>; rel=stylesheet; anchor=</foo>

when returned for <>, would define a link 
relation between <> and <>, 
so the reference in the anchor is resolved against the source resource's 
URI, not the link target.

The use case for just a fragment identifier is obvious, that being said 
an example might be helpful here...
