i am not a fan of incorporating the content from A into B.  if you get
it wrongly, we chase the confusion caused by the conflict(s) forever.
and if you get it correctly, then why the heck not just refer to it?

ymmv, of course.

my impression is that the 6man chair and document author (beep) is
trying to produce a stone tablet to be carried down the mountain.  which
is partially why i am being such a bleep about getting it correct.
