All the swim lane diagrams I've dealt with label the lanes by functional
group, not just numbering. Each lane shows the actions performed by a
particular member or organization; i.e., one lane for programmers, one lane
for QA testers, one lane for system admins, etc.

The only times I've seen the boxes or other action symbols numbered is when
there is an accompanying document that provides greater details about the
actions. In such a case, the numbering serves to link points in the diagram
to points in the document. If there is no such detail document, there is
really no point in numbering the symbols in the diagram.
