That's exactly my reasoning: It doesn't matter to them and is of no possible
use to outsiders. Because my numbering system is meaningless to anyone but
myself, unless I'm sharing docs with correspondants, I prefer to shield
people from it on formal reports. So if I ever print a Genealogy Report for
Grandma or for Great-Aunt Enid, they'll only see "Marriage Certificate for
John Stubbart & Audrey Fay Morford [blah blah blah]" not "Marriage
Certificate [blah blah blah] STUBBART MO15", which they might be misled to
believe means something to anyone other than me. :) Yet I can still include
it for my working reports, and be able to easily find my own docs.

Make sense? Well, it makes sense to me anyway. <g> I can see why others
wouldn't care about exposing their internal filing system. I just tend to be
rather particular about stuff like that "cluttering up" the view. :)

What would be the rationale for hiding your own personal document reference
numbers from readers? Unless they had access to your house to rummage
through your stuff, what it matter to them or of what possible use would it
be to outsiders? I guess I can't think through the scenarios.
