I was one of your audience, then, Martin. It's true that we found
numbered headings most useful. As a helicopter mechanic, I was made to
memorize that "11" was flight controls, "4" was rotors, "3" landing gear,
etc.(I hope I still have those right! It's been a while). The maintenance
manuals were kept in 3-ring binders, and new updates and corrections to them
dropped in, and old sections thrown out, all based on number. There's a
place for this numbering scheme, for sure.

Now, if they could just lock those cartoonists in a room until they
prove they've memorized the headings...
