Have the Table of Contents for long lists open by default
Have the Table of Contents for long lists open by default (without having to use the [show] link). Perhaps there could be two links:
[show] [show always]
(or when open)
[hide] [hide always]
This could describe the default open/close status of the list, as set by the list publisher.
Whilst not addressing this particular suggestion i.e. opening by default, the ToC improvements should alleviate the issues underlying this suggestion. The ToC is now clearer, stays docked and will can remain open and visible while scrolling through a list

I certainly agree with this - at the moment the ToC is not obvious.
