It used to be listed as a valid fragment type (because we expected
XPointer to take off, which it did not) but restricted to pointing to
an ID.

We resolved to take it out for SVG2. We did, but it looks as if we
forgot to fix the example.

Didn't we fix that so that #ID moved the element with that ID into
view, zooming out if needed so it all fit?

I recall Doug proposing that and my memory was that we did it for SVG
1.1 second edition.

No, it is useless behaviour.
