[wp-hackers] HTML Anchor Syntax

In a recent changeset (2906) , there are anchors that are being
created on the admin post page. The HTML uses the following syntax:
I am wondering why this specific syntax is being used instead of
simply adding the same id to the h2 element itself, like so:
<h2 id="preview-post"><?php _e('Post Preview (updated when post is
saved)'); ?> ...
As far as I know, using the A element for anchoring is a thing of the
past, and even then it was <a name="..."> (an empty element without
the closing </a>).
Clarification on this usage would be appreciated and I think it would
be good to establish a product-wide standard for anchor syntax (if one
doesn't already exist).
