Absolutely. I was a bit zealous about getting the "first draft" done
by just one or two people, for consistency and readablity. But I have
no more pending changes. At this point, we should treat it like
open source code. It should change as subversion changes.

Definitely! This is the big risk of allowing many, many people to
patch it. Well, not really a "risk", but yes, we should be reviewing
those commits more carefully, trying to ensure consistent tag style.
Just as we have a coding style, we should make sure people are using
texinfo tags consistenly as well.

Please fix the problems you see... your points above are definitely
things worth fixing.
