For overview pages, portals, and the like, it is often useful to be able to explicitly include a Table of Contents generated from the sections of a set of related pages or subpages. This takes the same amount of effort as transcluding those pages, but renders far more neatly and quickly.
- This TOC should link to the section of the appropriate page, not to a section on the current page.
- Some reasonable section numbering scheme should be used -- perhaps ABCDE for the top-level (page-level) sections.
- I can imagine using the page title as the top level section, which would also provide a TOC link to the "first" section of a page (the one with no anchor).
Or this could be implemented as an extension.
