Redefining/extending what the fragment component does for HTML is somewhat  
risky, so it really comes down to what exactly the processing should be.

What should a browser do with a URL ending with #foo&t=10 if there is an  
element on the page with id="foo&t=10"? What about #foo&bar if there is an  
element with id="foo"? I would be surprised if treating #foo& the same as  
#foo were Web compatible...

The part of the spec that would be affected is  
can you give more details about the changes you'd make?
