Ok, I think I understand now:
The !![[#heading]] markup looks like heading markup plus anchor
markup, but produces only a heading tag with an id, with the
advantage that the anchor markup in the source can be used
with the TextSection function.

But if a text section is retrieved through that, are not the
initial !! missing?

What might be more useful is an anchor preceding a heading.
Then it could be use to extract text including the heading,
with suitable id.

It could even be extended to generate a link for starting a
section edit. I am thinking of automatic display of FoxEdit
links when authorised to edit pages, which need anchors or
PTVs to grab text; I was playing with this just a short while
