I support keeping one document for this stuff (I think with
constraints, we've already separated out some of the most difficult to
grasp 'advanced concepts' there and I also support moving collections
out of DM.)

When I first try to explain this to people, I start with the diagram.
Perhaps we could move it to the start of section 2.1 instead of the

I like pushing bundles/collections out of the "core" section.  I think
that addresses some of Graham's concerns.

I also like reorganizing section 2 while keeping the component
structure in section 4.

I like the term "core" for section 2.1, and the term "extended" for
