I guess I would wonder how many people really still have to
support Netscape 4. And I would suspect that mobile browsers that
don't support addressing of @id as a fragment identifier are
likely to run into a number of other problems displaying content
generated from stylesheets (since we've never put any other
consideration into whether output from them will be usable in
low-end/legacy mobile browsers).
