That was my concern as well, Nick.  I would expect that an RS/UA requires a full list of “sections” and their logical ordering so that (if desired) it could present some UX elements such as a TOC, “bookmarks” or whatever.

Effort for authoring, very little, true.  Effort for the RS/UA, a LOT - since it would require opening & parsing every file to find the next links…
