> making the link visible does no har to usability 

David, 
do you have any data or studies to back up your assertion? 

My data shows that users (seniors, novice, and about 80% of all others) have
no idea why the link is there and when asked, expect it to do something
else, such as skip to some other page in the web site.  When they do click
on it they don't even realize that it only moved the focus to a different
spot. 

Regards,
Phill Jenkins,
