I think we already have clear standards for revision under GOP -- they're
the same as for the GDP.  Unless you are proposing different standards for
the LM and the NR.  If that's the case, then ignore my comments, because I'd
be fine with your standards if they apply only to the LM.  If they apply to
the NR, I think it would be a mistake to undo what we did with the GDP.

So ignore the rest of my comments if you intend them to apply to the LM

Yes, for organization.

NO.  Only introductory text goes in subsections

Most of the text goes here.  They appear in the TOC.  But because we use
unnumberedsubsubsec, each does not have a separate html page.  The separate
html pages are for Level 3, the subsection level.  You will see this
consistently in NR 1 and 2.

We make no distinction between long and short subsubsecs.  All are
unnumbered, and all are grouped in one html page.  This is accomplished by
