This works if the client/agent also specifies (only?) media type
'application' in the accept header of the http request, as that puts
the semantics of the fragment identifier component squarely
under the control of a spec we (the Semantic Web Activity)
could write rather than the HTTP or HTML specifications, per
section 3.5 of RFC 3986 [1].

I don't know if it would be considered legitimate to include a SPARQL
query with an 'accept: */*' header; perhaps DAWG will address
this question.  The 14 January SPARQL Protocol for RDF WD [2]
offers some enticing hints but I don't see that it directly answers this.
(It could also be implicit in a way that isn't clear to me at the moment.)
