Thanks Ron and Sandro! Ron's discussion and Sandro's wiki pages were just
what I was looking for. 

I had been doing search queries like ' Uri slash "pound sign"' and a search
on 'uri hash slash"' was more fruitful, turning up Sean Palmer's discussion
at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2001Nov/0083.html (ending
with "flip a coin, perhaps?") as well as Sandro's posting at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2002Apr/0056.html and
responses from an all-star cast.

These include quotes from Tim BL supporting the use of hashes, but none as
flatly stated as what he wrote at
http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/Fragment.html nearly seven years ago: 'RDF
namespaces should end with "#".' 

Of course, many sensible people have good counterarguments.
