The new stylesheet makes drafts more readable, but i also wastes space. 

Currently the W3C logo and Issue markings are put into the left margin. I think section numbers could be moved into the left margin, too.

I furthermore wonder whether for broad viewports (say, 2.5 times the text width) the right margin could be employed for figures, notes, (code) examples or even property tables. Ideally they would float stacked to the section’s heading and stay visible as complete and as long as possible.

  1.2. A heading
       Text that refers      #############
       to Figure 3 and          Figure 3
       then goes on a bit.   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 Issue Much more text        XXXXXXXXXXXXX
       until at some         XXXXXXXXXXXXX
       point Example 2       XXXXXXXXXXXXX
       is mentioned.         XXXXXXXXXXXXX
                             VVVVVVVVVVVVV
                               Example 2
  1.3. Another heading
       Text that refers      #############
       to Figure 4 and          Figure 4
       then goes on a bit.   XXXXXXXXXXXXX
       Much more text          Example 3
       until at some
       point Example 3
       is mentioned.           
  1.4. Final heading
