I have some concerns about this whole idea. These concerns would go away 
if the X<> were to create an anchor only if that anchor doesn't already

It seems likely to me that someone would want to say

  =head2 foo
  X<foo>

  Description of foo

and this patch, if I understand it correctly, would forbid this.
