If a text was broken down to sentences, an index of sentences like the VSS 
for Bibles could be used. It would allow for references/links to a 
sentence. One problem with collections of Early writings is that different 
translations and collections use different passage numberings. Much like 
different Bible translations use different verse numberings. Also like the 
Bible, there are order, omission and inclusion issues. Perhaps Harry 
Plantinga can give some input on that, and how they make, or will make, 
references in the works at CCEL.
