The "page contents" has been in place since the very first draft. Are 
you suggestion something different? If so, what?

The headings are intended to address that approach but unfortunately 
there isn't that much space in the "page contents" section to include 
the full headings. Do you think that the full headings in a table of 
contents would be more useful than the current "page contents" links?

First, please remember to always refresh. I don't think there are such 
links since the previous draft dated "2009/11/25 16:48:18".

Also, I had "@@@respective references section" as link-texts in the 
previous drafts. As a work in progress, I think it is fine to have some 
clearly marked open issues in working drafts.
