On a document processing note...

You are creating a lot of the boilerplate by using the ReSpec processing of
URI query strings.  That's great, but makes the URI look a little ugly.  I
would suggest that you set those options in the ReSpec head in your source
so that document viewers get a consistent view of the draft even if they
don't add all the cruft onto the URI.
