Do I understand this right that with --enable-internal-links two kind of
links are interpreted differently (and may cause resubmitions when
href="foo.html#frag" activated)? Well, this is a tiny difference and I
doubt page authors read RFC so carefully and this way.

Anyway, if without --enable-internal-links both kind of links are
assumed equaly to href="#frag" and cause resubmittion, that should be
fixed to work without resubmition.
