I think this looks OK the way it is.  It's introducing a concept that
most newbies won't be familiar with.

Ditto.

That one looked rather odd, yes.  I've rewritten it.

Eg.:

In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled ``History''
in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled
``History''; likewise combine any sections Entitled ``Acknowledgements'',
and any sections Entitled ``Dedications''.  You must delete all
sections Entitled ``Endorsements.''

And so on.  So I think I'll leave that one alone, too.
