One  of  the  things  that  often stops me using css-generated list or
header numbering (and instead to hard-code the numbers in the content)
is the need to refer to them in prose:

  as described in section 4.2 
  item 3 in the list above demonstrates 

Note that these are all same-document references[1].

[1] I imagine it will be another 10 years before we can make a robust
but autonumbered reference from chapter5.html to section 2.7.4 of
chapter2.html, both using stylesheet-generated numbering.

Best regards,
 Chris                            mailto:chris@w3.org
