If you specify the setters then you also need to specify how this
affects the value of the "href" attribute in the DOM. For example, in
Gecko if you have an <a href="foo#bar"> which has base URI
"http://example.com/" and you set anchor.hash on that anchor to "baz",
then the attribute value is changed to "http://example.com/foo#baz". I
can't speak to what happens in other browsers.
