New starting point for navigation asset.   (#373)
Issue

I would like to see a new starting point added to the navigation asset. self. (i.e. its own url) The reason is to dynamically change the start url of the nav asset, for when a nav asset is being used inside a Package. To achieve a dynamic 'TOC package'.

A start point modifier would probably be necessary as well. 

Calling the starting point, 'relative to navigation asset' would cause less confusion than calling it self.

Would there be other options along with this starting point? Like "Relative Depth" or something along those lines? Or if the user picks "Relative to This Navigation", do they have no other options to pick from?

It's been so long , i forget what the requirements, AND even the motivation was for this RFE. But, I think the new starting point should be similiar to existing starting points, providing as much flexibility as possible. So where ever possible use the existing options.

BTW,
I was able to create a nav asset template that impersonated a nav asset with this new starting point; relative to navigation asset. I had to use h::t::e and evaluate on relDepth to create the TOC that I wanted, but it worked. It's just not very flexible.
