Thanks, but your text left me confused, perhaps because it mixes the
details of the syntax and semantics with the explanation of why and
how to use them, and what is the result of such usage.  These should
be generally kept separate for clarity.

How about if you first tell informally what information is missing
from the original text, and then we see how to augment that by adding
the missing bits?
