well, I really want people to fill their name and email in, but I
don't want to force them, so I'm just presenting them with the text
field. I'm concerned that if I add "optional" somewhere, they will not
fill it in at all.

just added on the first page

You mean, in step4 ? something different than the back button ?

Do you want to get rid of the last two paragraphs:

  Please take the time to review this report and take action on the
  problems reported. If you have questions, please notify us at
  wai-report@w3.org, so that we can re-evaluate your page.

  Note. These comments were made by someone who visited your Web site
  who may not be affiliated with W3C or the WAI. For this reason, WAI
  does not take responsibility for the accuracy of this report nor the
  comments made in the report. For more information about the W3C Web
  Accessibility Initiative please visit http://www.w3.org/WAI.

there are important I think.
