Yes Brian, I also use headings and the ToC plugin. There would be one main advantage of linking to an anchor on the same page: to avoid duplication of information.
A counter-argument might be: if one page gets large enough to require local links, then perhaps it should be broken up into multiple pages. As a new Zim user, one reason I posted here to the mailing list was to get feedback on the pros and cons of anchors as a possible feature. There is another rationale in support of intra-page anchors: there is strong interest in folding, which indicates that relatively large pages may be used to advantage.
