I guess I agree. The client has no way to tell the server what the
fragment is (maybe that's the underlying problem here) so that the
redirect could include an equivalent fragment, if appropriate.
This is somewhat analogous to the question about a redirect from a
POST request - should the client assume the new request should use
method POST? Current clients use GET, and code (such as HyperNews)
depends on that behavior. I believe what is missing is a way for the
server to identify the full request, rather than just the URL, that
the client should use.
