Chapter numbers, figure numbers, and table numbers were essential in
the lead-type era, when you never knew which page something would end
up on, and tables and figures were often in separate ligatures.

Now that we have desktop publishing programs that can automatically
generate "see <heading> on page <number>," to me they're just antique
clutter.
