Hi all,

The latest draft of the document is at

Note the list of to-do's in the "status of this document" section. I would 
like to highlight that the table of contents is not in its final form.  I 
will be generating this, and in the meantime stripped out the links to 
techniques since they were changing and I didn't want major discrepancies.

Determine if we want to use "document" or "page."  Then check for 
consistent usage.
