This seams a good approach.  IMO anchors for heading shouldnt require a 
(visible) table of content. Cause I'maby like to link a arbitary heading 
in an arbitary page but the target page I do not need a table of 
content. So to make autmatic anchors independend from a toc seams a good 
thing.  It would be nice if a silent toc could be put into the 
groupheader to assign them automaticly to every page.

One question is the nameconvention. Numbers have the problem, if the 
content changes(additional heading), referenves maby point to the wrong 
anchor. Anchors with the same name as the heading(underscores instead of 
space) have the problem that there could exists multiple times. So it 
seams need some thinking to get a solution . ..
