Hi Raphael,

I have no monopoly on these chapters - these suggestions are things we
should all decide together.

I think your suggestions make sense and I'm more than happy to change
them (but not before this week's meeting) - unless somebody disagrees.

The only objection I have is with removing the numbering from sections
4 - if we do that, it will be impossible to easily refer to them
later. At minimum I would suggest using a numbered list.

As I was reading it today, I also had some further suggestions.

Re: the "Evaluation of Fitness" table - I agree, the table is a real
obstacle to readability. Maybe we could move it into an addendum,
since it is analysing implementation-specific points?

Also, I think section 4 (requirements) should probably go further up -
maybe section 5 first, then section 4, then section 3.

I'll make more suggestions as I go along reading.
