Aside from having some problems with the specific PDF modules you 
included, there is a lot I like about this approach. 

However, I'm a bit confused about the relationship between general
modules and technology specific modules. For instance, you included
both a module on abbreviations and on HTML abbreviations, with a
dependency noted.  Is that the way to indicate a module which is a
technology-specific implementation of a more general requirement?
This seems to be a slightly different relationship than, say, the
Strict HTML's dependency on Valid HTML.

This also seems to scatter technology-specific requirements, rather
than gathering them together in one place so someone using that
technology can be sure to catch all the requirements, and someone
who isn't using a specific technology can ignore the related
requirements. But this may just be a problem of presentation, not of
