  So if I have a

   <h2>Hovedlist av lenker for  finne veien p nettstedet</h2>
    <!-- list of links follows -->


   <h2>Inneholdsfortegnelse</h2>
    <!-- more lists of links follow -->


   <h2>Det var en gang ... </h2>
    <!-- lots of paragraphs, a few tables, a list or two, more paragraphs ... -->


   <h2>Vi takker disse for hjelpen</h2>
    <!-- more links follows -->



  you can easily jump to the content, and bypass the navigation, yes ?
  So, which one of them is the navigation ? Which one is the content ?

  If you are referring to a general "jump between headers" function,
  that allready exist and doesn't quite - I'd say - do the same thing.

  Yes, a UA-AT can differ between headers. But it can't say WHICH header
  belongs to the navitation and which does not. Only the author can
  indicate such a relationship.
