I think we can finesse that point as follows:

  For instance, if the representation is an HTML document, the
  fragment identifier designates a hypertext anchor. If the
  representation is an XML document, the fragment identifier
  designates an element. In the case of a graphics format, a URI
  reference might designate a circle or spline. In the case of RDF, a
  a URI reference can designate anything, be it abstract (e.g., a
  dream) or concrete (e.g., my car). The plain text media type does
  not define semantics for fragment identifiers.
