It depends critically on what you think the
semantics of the fragment are. In HTML (the best
analogy I can think of), the web page is not
trimmed or edited in any way -- you are merely
directed to one section of it.
I am also aware that browsers that don't
implement fragments will also show the whole
resource; so authors can't rely on he trimming.
Given both of these, I tend towards using # as a
focus of attention; if trimming is desired, the
server should probably do it (maybe using ?).
