Skipping navboxes is a decision that was taken by the WMF team
responsible for the mobile site (whatever it was called at the time)
and can be solved cleanly only at the skin level, but I don't expect
this to happen as long as it will break the mobile site.

Your proposal would be the ideal argument for reversing the current
"solution", yes, but realistically, it's not going to happen
throughout the hundreds of wikis that implemented navboxes.
