My apologies if this is too late, i've just now figured out how to access 
my mail in a sensible fashion from my place of vacation.

Please read me sentence again. If you change the heading text, the anchor 
lable will change. A changed anchor label is a problem that is similar to 
what you would have if anchor labels were determined from their number, 
i.e. if this is heading one, two, three etc. In this case, inserting a new 
heading means that the old label of say "toc3" will refer to the wrong 

The point is really that neither system is very good.
