More than just for footnotes.

A bit of both.
1. Say I decide that some development was misplaced. Usually, this means 
a bit more than cut and paste and it is helpful to fold away all that's 
irrelevant to the changes and just keep the relevant parts separated 
only by titles.
2. But, most important to me is to be able to see how the "story line" 
develops. I like to look at an outline that looks like a table of  
contents and then "zoom in" on this and then that particular chapter, 
etc. On and on.

Here, I don't "see" what you have in mind.
