I'm not sure that's really the question being asked by Eugene.  It  
sounds like the addressing of HyperScope goes beyond specific fragments:

"It can do path expressions, similar in spirit to XPath, which allows  
you to reference some subset of nodes in a document."

This sounds to me like, e.g., a URI that references all the TEL  
elements in a document, and only those elements, so the client can  
read the URI, load the document, and strip it down to the specified  
nodes.  So the question being asked is whether this would be better  
as http://domain.org/?hyperscope=class:tel or http://domain.org/ 
#hyperscope:class-tel or something else.
