I don’t think it is different than any other fragment identifier. You 
are linking to a specific clearly identified section of the document 
(e.g. interface settings, auto-reply settings, personal information, 
etc). Whether it is displayed as a tab is a presentational detail.

Tabs aren’t navigational elements?
