This is now in the source code repository so it will be in the next release. The links will be in a span with class=modulelinks
Note also that there is also already an undocumented way to move the edit links outside of the heading element. It can be configured to put those links in a div below the heading by adding this to theme.skin:
<portal:ModuleTitleControl runat="server" RenderEditLinksInsideHeading="false" />
I implemented this for mobile because the links were too crowded in the heading for mobile screens.
Generally the goal for those links has always been to keep them small and unobtrusive so they don't effect the layout so that editors see the site very closely to what non editors see. Moving them out of the heading does make them affect the flow of the content more than just making them small text or icons in the heading, but in mobile they need to be large enough to click with a finger easily.
