I'm not sure I understand the question.  When you use rootid, the chapter
numbers are preserved.  Why do you need another mechanism?  What do you want
it to do that is different?

Yes, you can put the number in a 'label' attribute of the chapter element.

Would you mind re-asking these questions in separate messages with
appropriate subject lines so they can be more easily found in the mailing
list archive?   Thanks.
