The default switches syntax was originally designed for code block and
it generally supports continuous numbering across several subsequent
code blocks or starting the numbering from certain line. Will such
features be useful for verses?

Do you know if customizing :lines 5 to something other than 5 is often
needed? Maybe it can be an export option?
