As we talked about on today's conf call, there are many documents that are published by the W3C that aren't done in the Technical Report format.  

This is because the TR doc format is found intimidating or daunting by many of our users. This is done especially for docs that are intended to be read by folks outside of the W3C (primers, intros, and guides.)

>From my experience, I have seen this done quite well with the Internationalization and WAI activities.
