Actually, I found that document.  I felt it didn't fully illustrate
and expand upon what it was trying to convey.  It is geared towards
"constraints" rather than "precepts".

Actually, yes.  Finding information on www.w3.org is a nightmare,   
primarily due in fact because it has virtually no organized structure
to it's content (other than a meek attempt at the top level).   
Furthermore, there is no easy searching or secondary indexing 
mechanism (cataloging information on a server by only one means will 
inherently make it harder to find anything).

I appologize if there is more than one type of organizational system
on www.w3.org, I was unable to find it (them).
