hi ben,

thanx for your answer.

a quick response to your questions, before i'm off for vaccation:

* i guess, bringing the understanding's document structure into line
   with the quickreference structure (as much as possible) would help
   certainly.

* next step would be (for me) to implement the ideas of making the
   understanding doc customizeable as the quickref is (or even more).

* if there will remain some minor changes to be done (i guess there will
   - there always are) we can hopefully find a consensus - especially if
   you will find my tool helpful, too.

if this approach is (currently) not an option - we could do it the other 
way round:
* i change the understanding's doc-structure manually and implement my
   ideas.
* and you hopefully adapt the structure afterwards in the official
   version.

but this is certainly not a thing i would like to do with each and every 
update of "understanding wcag 2.0" ;-)

what do you think? feel free to contact me for further questions, if you 
still miss my point. you might also contact me via skype.

best regards, michael
