I understand the desire not to move subsections below h3, but the mix of "format" and "instance" really just doesn't flow for me.  But it does kind of match the rest of the document with the "grouped sections" motif, so maybe it's at least consistent.

(It's already contorted enough that VN is a long header packet, but not from this version and therefore absent from the type table.)
