The change we've proposed and implemented in Chrome doesn't touch anything
in the URL spec or handling; it's entirely an extension to fragment
processing in HTML documents only. If this were implemented in WebKit and
Gecko I think that'd address any compat issues? If you don't agree, could
you clarify what you see as the main compat risk?
