The user is intellegent, she can determine what she wants to read and
headers make that much easier.  If you make them clear, she will read what
she knows is what she wants.

  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.
