A loooong time ago, we used <milestone/> to mark the reference sectioning of Plato’s Republic in various languages and editions (cf. LREC paper in 1998 Erjavec, Lawson & Romary).
Can you explain why <milestone/> does not work for you?

Since I want to mark it up for lexical analysis and indexing, the cleanest method appears to be <div> elements. Numbered sections may appear as independent paragraphs, indented in modern editions, or the numbering may occur in mid-paragraph. I can control this with an @rend attribute.

They are thus unnecessary for purposes of analysis or indexing, but I still need to encode them. I looked at the documentation, and the best solution seemed to be an empty element (ch. 20.2), but neither <pb/> nor <cb/> nor <milestone/> is quite what I'm looking for. What would you suggest for this case?
