Thank you; I was misled by the fact it lists only LaTeX in both its primary
and secondary functions. It seems like that ought to be fixed, but I don't
have any idea how to go about getting that categorization changed.

In any case, it looks far too limited for use in the real world (my very
first test failed because it doesn't seem to handle display equations). I'm
quite amazed that there isn't some robust standard set of macros for
handling endnotes properly in plain TeX. Maybe no one uses plain TeX any
more for typesetting books which make use of mathematics. Which would be
quite ironic.
