One thing at a time. FWIW, the high-level rules are *already* documented
in our wiki, as are changes from the previous authz incarnation (modulo
bugs). I'll really just summarize them in a more user-friendly way. All
known docs and issues are also linked from that page.

In fact the documentation we have now, as well as test coverage, is much
better than what we had before 1.10, when it was limited to half a
chapter in The Book and to reading the code. It's kind of "fun" trying
to document changes from undocumented behaviour.
