Not at the moment, as it might be confused with the bibliography.
However you are not the first to ask, so I will try to add it for

By the way, you said before:

I don't want to give you false hopes: importing into MS Word should
work well with text, but math (formulae and macros) will never be
perfect. Importing equations is hard; Word has its own equation editor
and it will not read LaTeX, HTML with CSS, MathML or anything else you
want to throw at it. So after some thought waiting for math macros to
export to Word is not worthwhile.

If you have any other improvements in mind for eLyXer please let me know.
