If a change must be made, the German style is the only choice I support.

1) It is semantically valid (no link embedded in the header tag)
2) It is semantically meaningful (edit link should be between header and
text, rather than in an ambiguous location)
2) It renders well with no CSS (will probably automatically follow from the

before, but with clear instructions somewhere (on MW.org?) about how to add
the CSS to acheive alternative results.
If that is done then it will give us the opportunity to experiment with
different edit button styles a lot more easily, in order to find a solution
that will fix all our problems.
