Currently tests have <link rel='help' href='' /> links that _must_ point to a specification section heading (i.e.: a URL from the spec's TOC).

Do you mean to let these point elsewhere in the spec or leave these pointing to a section and adding another link type pointing to the more specific target?

Either way has implications for the tools that I'll need to take into account.
