That's great, it definitely says structural controls are needed.  

Imagining I was a vendor (e.g. of a WYSIWYG tool), do we need to include any indication of what or how many "Author mechanisms" should be included?

I wouldn't want to say that all possible structures available in the language are provided, as that leads to bloated and difficult interfaces.

I'd like to say something along the lines of: Include structural elements as required by WCAG2 1.3.1, which is to say that they are appropriate to the content being authored.

Difficult though...
