Why would anyone except a lawyer want line numbering?

This could be good when you are producing documents in a team or group setting.

It is easier to reference a page and line number than it is to refer to a heading and a specific phrase to direct a person to a specific passage that requires discussion. It could also be useful for determining if two copies of a document are the same version, since all line 12s on page 3 are the same for each printed copy of the same version of a document.
