I found the original post to be slightly confusing but the comments have clarified the plan, and I think I like it but it'd need careful consideration: I also, for example, loath floating headers that aren't helping me, but this floating could help me if done right.

As a specific example, have you tried the Opera Mobile browser? if you fast scroll on that it will display an arrow in the scroll direction as a transparent overlay in thumb position, press it and you go direct to the top or bottom depending on scroll direction: incredibly helpful in many cases but not exactly what we'd want.

Aside: in Gmail j/k are next/previous email and [/] are next/previous+archive, very useful functions and those keyboard uses are great.

We're basically looking for a trigger to have the screen scroll to the next anchor of a given type, which given the very well marked up styles DW uses is fairly easy to establish/amend: I think it'd be better to have it stylable, I personally would prefer it on the right of my screen as floating up/down arrows for example but I'd imagine that would really annoy others.
