Anyone you're thinking of? Do let me know, and I will do my best to get
them involved.

One might argue that we had already adopted the document by that point
(e.g., see the chair's slides). So in some sense one might argue that
zero'ing the contents of the document and moving the structure around is
sort of going backwards. Nevertheless, I'm always open to do whatever it
takes to improve the document.
