  Indeed they have - which is why the controversy surrounding this issue
  confuses me.

  There is really no difference, in principle or in practice, between a
  "table of contents" link and a "main content" link. Both internal,
  both within the standards, both used exactly as internal links are
  meant to be used.


  As for the need - yes, there will *always* be a need for internal
  anchors to skip between various sections of a document - UNLESS, of
  course, we decide to predefine a number of a types of sections a
  document can have. Sortof not the new-fangled XML-type method, that.
