I'd suggest for the next pub cycle leaving "empty" sections with pointers, as it may be a bit bewildering for people otherwise.

This part of GCPM is a bit iffy (I think they ought to be named objects that can hold nodelists as well as strings) but maybe moving it will make it easier to work on it.

good - are you using the W3C GCPM leaders or the HÃ¥kon leaders? (as I recall, there's a difference in the "style", and in getting them to align, but I could be mistaken.

Same comment as removing above. An alternative is to move the IDs of the corresponding sections to the changelog, so links to the removed parts of the document will instead point to the changelog saying where they went.

Sounds good overall.

Where does this level element(selector, move|copy) ?
