So I have almost everything lined up for the migration; but it won't be 
possible until two bugs in WebIDL contiguous gets fixed:

Hopefully I'll think of some fixes for these next week, but the bugs 
aren't trivial to fix unfortunately.

I think it would be useful to take advantage of that delay to discuss 
other systematic changes we would like to make during the transition; 
I'm happy to join the editors call next week to discuss this if that's 
the best way to make progress on this.

Right now, the changes that my script automates:
* remove noisy headings for attributes/methods/constructors for 
interfaces; this implies a somewhat smaller ToC as Adam noticed;
* keep items in the order they are described in the markup (rather than 
enforcing alphabetical order)
