I don't. But, a usual, it could always be an option. Note that it would 
be a pain for long pages to have to identify a section to edit, then go 
to the top of page to edit it. In the case of a book, with chapters, 
sections, and so on, it would be a showstopper.

display regardless of edit permissions, there's the nosections 

It's a neat recipe.
