I believe the word Richard Lewis is looking for is the German Satz. Not only does it serve the purpose, it is established in the literature (see article by William Drabkin and Ingeborg Pfingsten in NGO) and short.

Some interesting answers here. But isn't this in effect a database problem? Tools from that world sound like the best solutions: Roman numerals, subletters, and so on. Not elegant, but both more functional and less frustrating than trying to coin logical terminology.
