In fact, this would be worse. The anchor takes up zero area. This is
sort-of acceptable for a link destination, but it's definitely bad for a
link source, since it's now (practically) un-clickable! The HTML standard
allows anchors to be sources and destinations simultaneously; take advantage
of that if needed.
