In "The diagram shows directional traversal arcs reflecting the
following settings,
where both As and Cs are allowed to initiatve traversal to all Bs:" in
section 3.1.4 "initiatve" should clearly be "initiate".

More seriously, I don't like the solid lines between the pentagons and
the squares in the various pictures. To me these indicate an arc.
However, the arcs are indicated by the dashed lines. Since there are no
explicit links between resources without arcs, none should be shown.
There shoudl simply be unconnected pentagons (at least, until you
actually do show arcs). This more clearly makes the point of "Without
traversal rules being provided, the five resources are associated in no
particular order, with no implication as to whether and how individual
resources are accessed."
