Make Special:Preferences preference heading IDs (for linking) discoverable
Open, LowestPublic

Description

So we have useful HTML id=""s in the HTML page source of Special:Preferences for preference headings. For example https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-personal-signature is the anchor to the "Signature" preference.

But we don't currently expose links to these headings in the user interface. :-(

This is related to T18691: RFC: Section headings should have a clickable anchor.
