Yes. xmlbase specifies:

[[
The value of this attribute is interpreted as a URI Reference as defined 
in RFC 2396 [IETF RFC 2396], after processing according to Section 3.1.
]]

and then implicitly suggests dropping any fragment, since the latter 
parts of the document talks about URIs rather than URI Reference.
