Yes,t hat is correct. I would also use it for headlines that appear in the
title of contents and eventually (once that is programmed) also in the case
of word index terms.

Basically it would be monitoring for a change in the return value of *
getRegionsByContent* for an individual element.

That is correct.

This event would only be listened for by the page creation part. Currently
it listens to the regionlayoutevent, and then performs checks whether there
has actually been any change to the number of pages needed.
