I see no need for the two methods and have proposed that the first entry actually go to the entry in the eBook. Currently, if you have several levels in the TOC only the most detailed entry will actually go to the ebook which means if there is text between the levels you can't directly reach it and more keystrokes are required.
I hadn't even thought of the inability to go to the parent header. I was excited about this feature as I had not seen it before. So far I've only read Fiction which I only use the Chapter links.
I decided to play around with the Bible book in my word processor to see what effects I could get with footnotes and endnotes, and found this feature by happy happenstance.
