i think this and other suggestions for how to cut are all useful and 
the goal is to be of the most use.  note that the portion of the owl 
overview document this is trying to replace did attempt to be 
comprehensive but that was easier in owl 1 than owl 2 (and conceivably 
may be perceived as less critical now).
if we can serve more users well with one 2 page pdf and another longer 
html version, that is fine with me.
the question is how much we have to sacrifice in content (and 
potentially understandability) to hit 2 pages.
bijan (and others) had a few nice suggestions that may help.  perhaps we 
can try the formatting suggestions and see how close that gets us.
