do you think that we should keep the current mixture of "staff" and "stave" to denote the same thing, for example in the subsection titles within "Staff notation"?

No; we should use "staff" and "staves". One of the instructions for the Trivial/Easy will be to fix any such mistakes.

I think I wrote "when dealing with multiple @internalsref{Staff}s, you can...", but such phrases should be rephrased to "multiple @{Staff} contexts".

- How about adding some section like "Other typesetting features", which could contain things that don't really fit in anywhere else, like the four I mentioned above.

I've expanded the Education section to include all of these things. I'm not wild about the name "Education", but I think all these items work well inside that section (whatever we name the section).

- Again, I might not have the right intuition for English language, but how about replacing "Text in a score" with something along the lines of "Textual annotations"
 I would also move "New dynamic marks" from 1.17.2 to 1.17.1.

To match other subsection titles, I called it "Writing text".

- Why doesn't Text markup commands belong under 1.17.2 Text markup?

As Valentin said; the markup commands are even more of a reference. Hmm... actually, what about moving these into an Appendix?
