@Hans: Does it make sense to redo all the theorem etc using the new 
structure code? There is a little difference between

\startsection .... \stopsection

\starttheorem .... \stoptheorem

except that in enumerations the title is optional and there are a few 
predefined header styles (location=whatever), and enumerations have a 

That will easily allow:

\startthoerem[text={Yoneda Lemma}]

etc and one will also get the option of setting the list text, bookmarks, 
and page marks.
