I was trying to avoid duplicating the @samp{svn:eol-style} subsubsection
of the properties node, which already does that. In fact, the cross
reference to it is pretty much the point of this subsection.

Is there a way to do a cross reference to a specific spot within a node?
Otherwise, I might just move much of that to this chapter.

Sure. No big objections to the rest of your proposed changes.
