There may not be an easy way to do this, but "same content, different 
format" and "different content but related concepts" may need to be 
differentiated. Actually, the former now reminds me of the accessibility 
proposals, which might solve this, since those were focused specifically 
on different technology capabilities of the same content, so that people 
needing a particular technology or accessibility feature could know that 
they were getting the same content, not something different.
