In my experience, this is done by people coming from MS Word and/or
unfamiliar with how FM books work. I seem to recall someone posting to
this list that they were using a single file so their figure numbering
would be continuous throughout the book. Sigh...

IMHO, there is no good reason for ever creating a single-file 300-page
manual in FM.
