I think that this is where I don't understand any longer (maybe because
of bad habits taken admnistrating web servers).

Unless I am very wrong, in HTTP [1] there is no such thing as a fragment
identifier: the client sends a HTTP request for a resource, gets this
resource back and processes the document to find the fragment matching
the fragment identifier.

In other words, a client never sends a request for a fragment!

And if the processing involves a PSVI, the PSVI has to be constructed
client side with eventually no indication at all in the document (unless
the server sends the PSVI but this would require defining a
serialization for the PSVI first :-))))))...
