I'd like to add that that it also breaks the paragraph autonumbering.
Since each added point page becomes a separate flow, every numbering
you have in the form of steps, headings, figures, etc. will reset
and have to be set manually by using overrides.

So, it's useful for text-only contents without autonumbering that
don't break across page boundaries. Exactly the type of documents
you'd use FM for, right? :-)
