How about doing this in the separated-out defns page?  Then the numbers can be 
autogenerated (the page is made with XSLT from rq23).

Numbers can be added to rq23 but unless it is very late in the process, they 
just end up broken (e.g.  UC&R 3.8).  Named anchors don't have this 
problem/overhead.
