Well, let we have a lengthy text and the author uses some notation,
introduced somewhere probably 100 pages ago and never mentioned since
(you cannot find it) and using this notation the author does not care
to say something like "introduced in section 6.1" or "by formula
(6.1.78)" and well, hyperref is not used either.
