Tantek wrote on IRC today that "it is not allowed across pages," so  
we don't need to worry about those problems right now.  Before  
identifying fragments by IDs became common, authors would often  
create addressable fragments with empty anchors, e.g.:

<a name="fragment" href=""></a>

So I don't expect doing the opposite would be a difficult concept for  
authors.  Of course, people don't do this much anymore because it's  
ugly, but we seem to be lacking any prettier alternative.
