Answering to myself, one more comment:

--8<----8<----8<----8<----8<-- begin -->8---->8---->8---->8---->8----
Assign a number to @var{key}.  In ordinary text
code{\label at domain.hid}@}} assigns to @var{key} the number of the current
sectional unit.
--8<----8<----8<----8<----8<-- end -->8---->8---->8---->8---->8----

I think that Assign a number to @var{key}' is a bit misleading, because
this can be anything that is in \@currentlabel at this time, which may
be something like 1.2-5 (not really a plain number). In my opinion it
would be bettet to write Assign a reference number to @var{key}'
