A case against hash URIs is that your deployment won't play well with IE 
6. The problem with IE 6 is that it sends # over the wire. Other 
browsers don't. Thus, you (the publisher) has extra work on your hands 
should you want your Linked Data deployment to cater to IE 6 users. This 
is why DBpedia opted to use slash URIs since that meant a single set of 
re-write rules without any exception oriented heuristics for IE 6 user 
agents.
