This looks great, Chris!

One thing I've wanted to do is make the editing experience much more
user-friendly with some of this information about what to put in each
section inline in the editing experience itself. Ideally they'd be in
summary/details elements (or their shimmed equivalent) so that they didn't
get in the way of experienced editors.  We'd do this by modifying the form
section templates (e.g.
http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/Template:Summary_Form_Section).
