As I said earlier in the thread, IT DEPENDS. Robert's approach certainly sounds effective and attractive for some types of work--maybe for all documents he is involved with, maybe for all documents you are involved with.

In other contexts, maintaining separate number streams is expected and doing otherwise will bring your readers up short.

There is no single solution for everything (cracks about water being the universal solvent will not be found amusing).

Know thy audience ;-)
