I've often found the same problem but have never determined the cause -
does it perhaps relate to the location of the TOC?

Also each link says "edit", but the target (and thus action) is
different. This is bad, from an accessibility PoV.

Finally (from me, for now), I've had an e-mail from someone wanting to
comment on the "species" proposal, saying:

        I've just tried creating an account on the microformats site so
        that I can join in with the discussion, but whenever I try to
        sign up, I get a message telling me 'You have not specified a
        valid user name'. I've tried various permutations without any
        luck. Did you have any trouble when signing up?

and, indeed I did - and couldn't figure out why the user name I wanted
to use was not being accepted.
