Operationally, footnotes are a list, ie a database, with the number of
the footnote simply being an index to its content. Programs that make
footnotes easy do automatic numbering for you, so adding and inserting
is a simple process.
Scribus operates with many lists (or databases) to store various
information (frames, Scrapbook, Character palette) which may be
indexed by name yet always have an order, so this is wholly consistent
with things that Scribus is already doing.
