But what if I include

%%% Local Variables:
%%% TeX-master: "masterfile.tex"
%%% End:

in all slave files instead? Doesn't AUCTeX know about the full document 
structure then?

I ask because I work this way each day - and RefTeX does a quite good 
job in parsing the whole document. It produces the toc, shows all 
labels, and so on. So I thought, AUCTeX will do this as well, doesn't
