The Index is auto-generated by Bert's processor.  The ?? links are for
unnumbered sections.  Every definition that isn't a property shows up
in the index automatically.  The formatting of terms is automatically
generated from the title/text of each definition.

I do agree that the auto-genned sections are typically not appendixes,
and don't need to be referenced like another section, and thus don't
need a number/letter.

(fantasai, if you want me to convert Text over to Bikeshed, let me
know.  I'm already working on converting Grid this morning, so I'll be
in the right mode. ^_^)
