I'm just thinking aloud here, but wouldn't it be better to keep the
two bindings in two separate documents? I'm not convinced that there's
going to be that much overlap in readership, plus that approach
would allow us to publish them indipendently, thus avoiding delaying
one binding because of issues with the other.

Thanks,
Roberto
