Oops, wrote this up yesterday when I posted an interim version of the 
draft, but forgot to hit 'send'.
...
I ended up not using this diff because I got distracted making other 
changes before remembering this diff.   However, I did find it useful 
to refer to, to see exactly what you had in mind.

The removal of subsections was not a conversion error originally but an 
editorial choice, deeming that inlined short examples can sometimes be 
good for readability.  Nevertheless, I can go back to using subsections 
for every example, but in that case there are more examples (the 
example of using a precondition code in a 403 Forbidden was the first 
such one in 08) which are new, and which should also be sections on 
their own if that's our choice.

Also note I indented some of the examples less as I went along -- 
consistently going for indentation of 2 spaces from the normal edge of 
text, and 2 spaces for each XML structural indentation.
