I think you're right on this point in general, though you could build a TOC out of extended links using arcs to restrict the one-to-many down to one-to-one without much difficulty. If you're looking for an automated TOC builder, I think you might actually find the 'restrained' extended link approach easier in some cases, though the simple link approach is more intuitive. (I argued for a long time that treating simple links as fundamentally different critters from extended links is ridiculous, but seem not to have won any ground on that point. Arcs at least offer some kind of middle ground now.) Simon St.Laurent XML Elements of Style / XML: A Primer, 2nd Ed.
