Not sure I understand this one...

Sounds good in principle, but in practice the journal styles are so far
removed from the standard LaTeX styles that it's more useful to think of
them as independent entities, rather than as variants of standard LaTeX
styles.  However, article is probably closer than book to what is used
in most journals.

Seems to me that ONE table of contents per issue would be enough (with
links to it from each article/chapter); why the need for a separate TOC
in each chapter---or am I confused?

That's for them to say:|
