Cool URIrefs?

Question : Cool URIs don't change, but what about cool URIrefs?

In the context of RDF, I don't think this is an issue - the URIref isn't
expected to return something when you point a browser at it, so there's an
air gap between the reference and the thing being referred to.

But through HTML glasses, is the expectation that an anchor will always
refer to the same information item? Through XML glasses, same question for
URIs + frag ids.

Cheers,
Danny.
