For now, just a comment on one part of this...

We are emulating the style of WAI standards -- see for example WCAG1.0 
[1].  In these, the Guidelines/Checkpoints are interleaved with 
prose.  They also provide a condensed tabular form [2], with only the 
succinct bits.

We are identifying the Gd and Ck with markup, so we can do the same thing 
using XSLT stylesheets -- full version, plus tabular summary -- without 
replicating content.  (In fact, not only are we emulating the style, we are 
borrowing the CSS stylesheets for presentation).

Thanks also for your comments on inconsistency of the presentation style -- 
we'll need to have a look at that aspect before FPWD.
