For further info: it is (as he says, loosely) based on:

http://w3c.github.io/rangefinder/

draft that was part of the Web Annotation WG, but was later abandoned by the group.

I think it is more limited than the general approach; it is based on a specific type of search into the text of a document. Richer in semantics than the Text Quote Selector[1] of the Annotation Model insofar as it adds an 'edit distance'. I do not think it touches any other selector types as defined in [1].

I have not seen the fraction ID spec (and I did not install this, I am not a real Chrome user). But, as discussed before, definition of a fraction ID for something like HTML is not something this WG should do…

Thanks!

Ivan
