There's a usability issue related to the module headings on the
"Current Work" page [1] (I'm just keeping on running into this issue
myself and see others run into it too, which finally makes me report
it).

So for instance, if you're jumping to the Selectors box [2], the
underlined "Selectors" heading suggests that it leads to respective
(most recent) specification, but that's not the case, it just links to
itself. Linking a resource to itself is known to be a usability
problem that's significant (not just for homepages and since 2003 [3])
yet usually easy to fix, so I'd ask to either remove respective links
or, likely better, to link the headings to respective most recent
document.


Thank you,
 Jens.
