I should add that it could only be considered tedious and error-prone
from the POV of someone who wants to provide a link to the section.
For the ordinary browsing user, who wants to see where in the overall
outline of the document he is currently, the no-op link is
*definitely* tedious: it doesn't do anything! It's also confusing, of

I think serving the ordinary browsing user is much more important than
serving the guy who wants to provide a link to the section, especially
if the difference is just one click.
