> The following rules prevent this overlap:

> - "pn" for regular sections always has the format "s-nnn", where "nnn" is the section or appendix number. For example, this would be "s-2.1.3" for Section 2.1.3 and "s-a" for Appendix A. For the <abstract> element, it is always "s-abstract". For the <note> element, it is always "s-note-nnn", where "nnn" is a sequential value. For the <boilerplate> element, it is always "s-boilerplate-nnn", where "nnn" is a sequential value.

a) What is "pn" for a section that is unnumbered? I assume numbers are 
still assigned, just not displayed?

b) Don't we need "pn" on <references> (as they get numbered as regular 
sections)?

c) Why is "pn" for <boilerplate> numbered when it can only occur once?

Best regards, Julian
