However, because the anchor comes after the title, the browser positions itself right under
the title instead of right on it, thus hiding it at first sight. The consequence is a disoriented
user. Is there any reason not to allow the anchor element to come _before_ the title element?
That would solve this disorientation.

That's what the @id attribute is for.  <section id="blah"> creates an <a 
name="blah"> in the HTML just before the section.  You can put an @id on 
any element and it will have this effect.

More skins are always good :)
