Dear Gavin,

You are quite right, if the manual is printed, one needs the page numbers.

I would be satisfied with an option in which the page number is printed
as a superscript @sup{page-no} (similar to footnote numbers) next to the
closing square bracket.

That is, from this

Section 1.13 [Intactv-Function], page 11,

to this

Section 1.13 [Intactv-Function]@sup{11},

The would solve the problem, yet keep requirements intact.
