Regarding the recent numbering discussion:
The only time numbering has been helpful for us is when
many people are in one room together reviewing the
document. To get everyone jumping around to the correct
sections, numbering proved to be the quickest way, even
though page numbers and non-numbered headings should
have sufficed. This experience is only with documents
of 200 pages or more.
