As far as I understand web technologies, the anchor is not sent to the
HTTP server. So the rewriting can only be done via JavaScript and not
through Apache.

If globe.torproject.org is kept as a separate virtual host, the
rewriting code can be sent only to people visiting asking for
globe.torproject.org. As this requires no change to Atlas' code, this
solution feels cleaner to me.
