I did this a short while ago, making each page contain the relevant 
portion of the full table of contents - see e.g. 
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/commands.html 
or any other page. Hopefully this makes it easier to navigate.

(The W3C multipage version of the spec doesn't have this, since it's 
using an old version of the splitter script and hasn't been updated yet.)
