I'm poking around at this. I'm not sure sections are the best way to 
organise this, because self-contained features are often in various parts 
of the spec, or end up sprouting new sections unexpectedly. So I'm looking 
at annotating the spec source with specific topics, e.g. "WebSockets" or 
"Navigation" or whatnot.

If people could e-mail me the lists of topics they would be interested in 
being e-mailed diffs for, it would give me a good idea of what coarseness 
would be helpful here, and thus whether this is a realistic idea.
