Sure, please, commit v3 patch. It will help me divide further work into atomic
patches or commits instead of a single blanket patch. I'm sure that it will be
much easier to review the document this way.

I am going to work on further improvements and as soon as they are ready, I will
start a new [PATCH] thread. However, what about creating a lightweight branch[1]
for this doc task? I know that a lightweight branch can be created for code
changes, but the site/ does not have branches at all. I am not sure about that.
