Thanks for pointing me to this thread. This is exactly the same thing that I
am trying to achieve. I absolutely share this opinion:

I remember getting very confused by the jump element (and fork
and connect) when i started writing a big doc for Cocoon.
I wanted a little table-of-contents at the top to jump to relevant
sections below. So confused that i resorted to using simple
<link href="#anchor"> which worked OK.

Maybe we can simply vote for replacing all the 'link' clones and leaving the
one that the most people are used to? I mean simple <link href=""
[target=""] /> (not sure for the 'target')?

What are the objections?
