I'm sorry, I am failing to understand the difference between a series 
of 'skip' links and a table of contents at the page level.  When we 
say "Navigation is important and part of navigation is to be able to 
move through a site efficiently." do we mean the entire site or just
a single page?  At the site level, a table of contents or site map 
should provide this efficiency.  At the page level we may need a
visible table of contents for pages with a large amount of content 
that is organized into logical sections.  On a page with a single
main 'topic' we may only need one hidden link to allow users an 
efficient way to bypass a global section residing at the top of every 
page.  Either way, both seem to provide the same efficiency - quickly 
getting to content the user is interested in.  I sense there is some
point I am not getting.
