Actually, I think that is false (and a bug in Firefox). At the time the data URI RFC was written RFC 2396 was still the URI RFC and there fragment identifiers were not a formal part of the URI syntax but rather something you could append to any URI during retrieval operations, which is clearly what data URIs are for.
