#126 new defect

Fragments are part of URIs syntactically, but not part of URI scheme definitions

Description

With respect to fragment identifiers, make sure that the following two things are clear to people creating new schemes:

1) Fragment identifiers are part of URIs, and scheme definitions cannot and MUST NOT disallow fragments on specific schemes (even if the usability of a fragment id on the particular scheme being defined seems questionable at the time the scheme definition is made).

2) Fragment identifiers are independent of schemes, depending on MIME media types, and therefore scheme definitions cannot define anything about fragment identifiers.
