IIRC, over ten years ago, I dropped managing of URLs plus #NAME
anchors in the history design.  It was probably because it is
possible to grow the history data excessively and it won't get
necessarily useful.

What emacs-w3m does then is to retrieve the contents of `bla',
render it, and jump to `#mla'.  Only `bla' is significant for
almost all the progress of work, so emacs-w3m mainly manages it
for all the time.

Maybe it is not easy to make the history manage #NAME anchors and
doesn't seem to be worth taking trouble.  So, I will probably not
have an urge to do it now and forever.  Sorry.
