AFAIK, index nodes are just normal nodes with a big menu.
Thus index entries have the same format as menu entries:


It's just that traditionally index nodes use an empty DESCRIPTION
and align all the LOCATIONs so it looks like

     * NAME1:                     LOCATION1.
     * NAME2:                     LOCATION2.

Adding a DESCRIPTION of the form "5." is just as valid as "(line 5)".
Now if the node has a new special index-tag (can't remember what it looks
like), maybe things are different, but with old-style index nodes, it looks
perfectly valid to me.
