I think that it is wrong.  Indeed, the principle of
CONTENTS_OUTPUT_LOCATION=inline is to have the table of contents
output where the @-command @contents is.  If the user uses
CONTENTS_OUTPUT_LOCATION=inline it means that she wants the table of
contents to appear where @contents here, not at the beginning as it is
the meaning of CONTENTS_OUTPUT_LOCATION=after_top.

To me, if anything needs to change, it should only be the documentation.

Removing completly the header can be done with the init file I attach.
Changing the formatting  would be more complicated, it would probably
require setting up a new 'format_...' like
format_contents_inline_element, and redefining it.
