[whatwg] hashchange only dispatched in history traversal

Originally the name after the hash was a bookmark, not a fragment, because
it would be defined on an anchor.  I agree that until the new semantic makes
it to the common knowledge using the name "fragment" for the purpose may be
surprising for some developers.

Best regards

I kind of like onfragmentload but "fragment" seems to have connotations of 
bits of documents rather than of fragment identifiers. I don't think it's 
necessarily any clearer than "hash"... I don't know.
