Here's a thought for section-based editing. I am not sure that I'd like to 
have '[edit]'-links scattered at the different headings in a document. So 
what if an option to (:toc:) made it so that the TOC got edit links for 
each line? A TOC could look like this:

	1. This is the first section                 [edit]
	1.1 This is the firs sub-section             [edit]
	2. This is section two                       [edit]
	2.1 This is a subsetcion in section 2        [edit]

Yet another alternative could be to have a drop-down list next to the edit 
button which allows you to select which section to edit? Hmm... I kind of 
like this last alternative.

It is not clear however if editing say section 1., automatically means you 
edit that section and its subsections as well, or just section 1 up to the 
first subsection.
