It occurs to me that perhaps a good, well-documented example of Approach 1
might remove most of the needs for a "table of contents flowable" and
You only really need multi-pass for references within a paragraph, where you
don't know how wide the text string is going to be until later because you don't
know yet if it's going to say 'page 9' or 'page 10'
