Well, the straightforward way to get a representation of such
a resource is to find another URI for it, one that doesn't
have a fragID, and dereference that URI.

"[...] some intermediaries in Web architecture (such as proxies) have no
interaction with fragment identifiers and that redirection (in HTTP
[RFC2616], for example) does not account for fragments."

No, that's not a way of getting a representation of such a resource.
