Thank you, Markus. Fine-grained anchors will be extremely helpful!

The current version is much better than what it was the last week. I
noticed the syntax has been updated in accordance with current Syntax,
which was my main concern.

I haven't yet get time to update QRG with the new Primer, but will do
soon. I will also update my "List of everything" [1] (my handy
reference for features across documents)

thanks again for the hard work.
