About PRLs (Pamphlet URLs)...

The key reason, which didn't leap to mind this morning, is that
they are the enabling technology behind "Booklets". The Booklet
is intended to collect Pamphlets into a joined form. However,
for purposes of a readable exposition, it will almost certainly
be necessary to quote sections of the Pamphlets "out of order".

Consider what happens when you try to explain all of the matrix
facilities, which are individually described in Pamphlets, as one
Booklet. Clearly one could use the "Big Staple" approach and just
concatenate them. However, it would be better if the Booklet were
more organized. Booklets need to quote portions of the Pamphlets.
You could clearly do this by copying but it would be better to
use <<PRL:>> style references.
