On the Dutch village pump there's been some discussion about infoboxes and other often complicated-looking and large pieces of wikitext that precede the actual text of the article. One possibility to resolve this would be if we could put the text at the bottom of the page, and just add a pointer to it at the top. This would then, I imagine, look something like this:
Now we can start the real text of '''this article''' at line three instead of line forty, which doesn't look that [[intimidating]] to new users.
Here goes all the ugly stuff that we don't want to bother the new writer with}}

Hi Andre! Sorry that nobody has taken a look at this report yet and given feedback.
How relevant is this nowadays? On which screen sizes there are pieces of wikitext which preced the actual text still? Examples welcome...
This is outside the scope of ParserFunctions. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Variables does exactly what you want.
