The Include macro should cause the anchors in the included page to 
be "qualified" so that they do not conflict with anchors in the parent page 
or other included pages. This happens for headings which are assigned anchors 
by Moin automatically, and you can see the result in any page with a table of 
contents that is including other pages. For example:


See how links are "qualified", here for "How does merging work?" on the 
GeneralUsage page:


When the GeneralUsage page is displayed normally, there is an 
anchor "How_does_merging_work.3F" for the same content.

I would expect to see explicitly defined anchors modified in the same way on 
pages that include other pages containing such anchors. Are you certain that 
the HTML source has no anchors whatsoever as opposed to "qualified" anchors?
