Bright idea! I'm not sure, but I seem to detect in some of the comments in this thread a question as to why there could be a need to move inside a document without every refetching it (from the cache or wherever). But I think it goes without saying that something like this is needed, and if it didn't exist (currently as a special convention for URL references of the form "#blarg"), somebody would come along and invent it :-).
