[rfc-i] Anchors on list paragraphs needs to be thought about

There is support for doing references to list paragraphs (i.e. the t node)
in the current code.  However it is not well thought out in terms of what is
should do.  

 

TCL will always use a number for the paragraph regardless of what style is
actually used for the list.  TCL will build a dotted list of numbers from
the base list item to the list item with the anchor on it.  Thus it would
reference Paragraph 2.3.4

 

Python will always use a number for the paragraph regardless of what style
is acutally used for the list.  Python will only use the current list when
building the anchor reference.  Thus it would reference Paragraph 4.

 

Items that need to be discussed.

 

1.        Should the reference value reflect the style, and in that case
what is the correct reference value to use for each of the styles.

2.       Should the reference value be built from the chain of list
elements?

3.       Should it be possible to generate a reference that is a partial
list of the chain of elements

4.       Should the default string be something other than Paragraph XXXXX
