This is actually and EMF question, since it's EMF that determines how to
encode the fragment part (the part after the #) of the URI pointing to
an object within a resource.
Try using the id or key feature of the attribute, to tell the resource
that this attribute is either unique within the whole resource or unique
within its eContainer. This should affect the fragment.
