    Maybe I'm being dense, but I still fail to see the evil 
    inherent in providing internal anchors
    <a name="content"></a>
    and then offering a link to "skip" to those anchors
    <a href="#content" ...>skip to main content</a>

dp. How might it be described if I write
<a href="#content">Go turn yourself into a toad and you'll get to the target of this lnk</a>

Is that a skip? Surely the content of element is for local use? It can be
very helpful, or of little use. Specifying that it always should contain
a specific word is hardly in the spirit of SGML markup? Table of contents? Click here?
Its author options again.
