Suggestion to WRI for notebook navigation (frontend)

I've just been using Scientific Word (LaTeX GUI), which shares a
highly similar structured-document framework to Mathematica's
Notebook.

I like Mathematica's section/sub-section collapsable enclosure brackets, but
it's still a bit of a pain to get quickly to various sections and
nested subsections, particularly if their brackets are collapsed.

At the top of SciWord's window, there is a pull-down menu, providing
an ordered list of accordingly indented section and subsection titles.
 The pull-down allows rapid scroll-and-pop selection to jump about. 
The analog would be random-access seeks of a hard drive, versus the
sequential-access seeks forced by window-scrolling. The pulldown's
window shows the current title (location).  There're also
next/previous and forward/back buttons, similar to a web-browser's.

Gee, wouldn't it be nice...
