Open questions:

If you renumber something, what happens to all the links that relied on the
sequence? Is renumbering only allowed during original creation of a
document, and, in turn, not allowed later (i.e. documents may only be
annotated, not revised)? <thesis>after you publish a document, scanners will
build links that will be near impossible to maintain unless an enormous
database of link dependencies is maintained</thesis>
