IMO, that's a bit of a hack, abusing named anchors which are supposed to 
simply target a specific area of a given page, not cause different content to 
be loaded.

e.g. http://myapp.com/#foo and http://myapp.com/#bar should serve up the same 
content, but the browser should scroll to the appropriate anchor.

Maybe I'm just being old-school (damn kids, get off my lawn)
