Could browsers be made to scroll down (e.g. by 67%) if you add #67% to a URL?

My answer to Could browsers be made to scroll down (e.g. by 67%) if you add #67% to a URL? on Quora

I’d say no.

Presumably you want this so you can link to a particular point on a page—but the liquid nature of the Web means that you have no way of guaranteeing that the sentence 67% down the page for you is the same as the sentence 67% down the page for someone else (who may have a different browser width or font size).
