I'm not sure why you would describe it as useless?  It's incredibly 
useful to have a way to link to a particular section.

And ugly? It's a UI that is invisible and unobtrusive, but then elegant 
once you hover over the element you are interested in.

I guess tastes differ...  Lots of sites use this technique, it is not 
particular to the Python docs.
