Hi Bud.

I agree that legal references follow the particular format (based on 
Article-Para...), however my argument was for a more "human-readable" or 
"layman-friendly" name such as consent or legitimate interest with a 
reference to its 'source' or 'definition' provided by the 
Article-Para... reference.
