Bug #5152 reminds me to make a comment that has been at the back of my mind for
a long time: it would be very much easier on the reader if validation rules,
constraints, information set contributions and similar pseudo-sections became
regular sections numbered according to the place in the document structure
where they occur. This would make it easier to refer to them when discussing
the spec (for example, when raising comments on a draft), and when reading the
spec, especially by following links, it would reduce the sense of
disorientation felt when you have no idea where in the document you have
landed. It would ensure that the rules appear in the table of contents, and for
those who like to use printed copies of the spec on paper, it would make the
links much easier to follow.
