I took it up as an action item to query the requester for agenda item "#00763 Inline index terms for JATS".

The question posed during the Jan 16 JATS Standing Committee meeting was whether the need for a back-of-the-book type of index for journals was for referencing back to parts *inside* an article or only pointing from the index back to *entire* articles. Below is the answer from the original requester Jan Driesen:

"Thank you for discussing this and forwarding the questions to us.
In most cases, the indexing would anchor to points or specific words at a specific place in the article. In some cases, mainly in longer articles, "zones" of texts are pointed to: a (part of a) paragraph, or in some cases a set of paragraphs, which explains the "page ranges" in the index. Although referencing a larger zone is an important feature, it is never intended to reference a full article.
Finding the granular place in the article where the matter is discussed is the main objective. Finding the article itself is not the intention of the functionality, even though I would personally find it an interesting thing to consider for e.g. an archive or online collection."
