Hi,

I adoped the suggestion below for the changed example query now.
I also modified the example for the federated query to a working one.

As far as I can tell, the only bigger open issue now is the order of the sections, 
where I personally still kind of prefer to tell the "story" for the overview document 
in the order I have now, but I guess we can discuss this in detail for the next 
iteration and ideally get the document out for review now as soon as possible.

This said, I'd consider the Overview Doc ready at least for FPWD, ie. this is the "go-ahead" 
to trigger Matt's and Andy's review actions ACTION-540 & ACTION-541.

best,
Axel
