I think so too; c99 also has these, so it's not just Ada.

I'll have a look at this later; even if it cannot be gotten to work in
notes properly, there is a fighting chance of being able to number the
whole note as if it were a single paragraph (which many of them are anyway).

Unless there is overwhelming condemnation I'm planning on keeping them
for WG5 to vote on (at meeting 181), there is no need to rush to decide
