Out of interest, what about this?
http://www.foo.com#foo=bar (Assuming the '=' is escaped)
Would select the element(s) whose foo attribute has the
value 'bar'? One could distinguish this form from #foo easily
Sure, it doesn't guarantee uniqueness, but the CSS people thought a
similar work around to the lack of IDs was good enough for them.
Why not here?
I know it's hacky and not 'right', but it seems low impact.
