I think that just puts some restrictions on the arrangement on the server.
My guess is that once a resource is shadowed, it becomes invisible, and the
server should not serve resources that might be shadowed unless the
publisher knows what she is doing.  It is not the only way to make a site

It sounds like that affects all loads, which leads to issues:

So if I load <http://www.example.com/x.m21#y.html*q>
http://www.example.com/x.m21#y.html and (in the same document, or in another
tab?) load http://www.example.com/z.html, and x.m21 contains a z.html but
the server also responds to http://example.com/z.html, does the second load
(z.html) come from the server or the container? Does it depend on whether
the second load starts before the first load finishes?

The same questions apply to Russell's proposal.
