Side notes along an outline

I'm trying to do a complex layout that I've yet to find a good solution for. A significant amount of my text is an outline with multiple levels, which in the past I have used easylist for. In my next project, though, I have a lot of one-line references that I want to run to the right of the outline, on the exact line for the reference.

I don't want these to be typical marginal notes, though, because these documents have a small marginal space that wouldn't accommodate; they also consist of more than outlines, so if I change the margin size to accommodate there would be a ton of margin space for no reason in everything else. Plus, I want them on the exact line, not floating.

This is what I've come up with so far (borrowing an example from another topic):

My problems with what I have:
• The outline numbers are being vertically aligned in the center, not the top.
• Line spacing in outline seems to get confused? (see lack of space below "Section")
• Just for my own sanity, the source is pretty hard to read with the repeated begin/end tabularx, and God forbid pages into it I realize I need to make a change in all of those.

I'm also open to suggestions of other ways to do what I want.

Reason: scaled images to a smaller size so they don't destroy formatting of the site

Found my own solution. I stopped using easylist or any other list structures, and instead made some of my own counters.
