Were the edits incompatible with each other? With existing markup? With
something else?

To you, Tantek, I am sorry for making my suggestions so difficult to find.
To all list subscribers, I am sorry for stuffing your mailboxes with a
shakily planned and very large message.

You're right on. I was seeking a way to preserve the structure of the
original rather than flattening to plain text. This was especially important
for markup suggestions. My choice was a bad one. Plain text is also bad
(though better than a full document duplication). Suggestions are welcome
and should go to the list, for the public benefit.
