With all due respect to the authors of the Latex Companion and to
Alain, this is complete rubbish. Modifying an \includeonly  statement
in a master file is routine and doesn't compromise the integrity or
beauty of the work.

In Lamports book it is explicitly stated that fragile commands should
be protected when used in sectioning commands. Thus I would recommend
to use \textit instead of \emph in section commands and be done with
it.
