Looks good. I am pleased to see the text explicitly provide
a place for sub-projects that are not strictly parser impls.

However, I would like to see 4.3.b changed from "componentry"
to something that reflects related function. For example,
an "HTML" sub-project would likely have several "components".
In other words, I'd rather see one HTML sub-project instead
of two (e.g. "HTML DOM" and "HTML parser").

Also, would these "components" be separated by programming
langauge as well? For example would an HTML parser in Java be
a different sub-project than an HTML parser in C/C++?

Other than that, I like it. There are a few minor wording
issues but the ideas and content are sound.

Speaking of which, what ever happened to that tool someone
was writing to tabulate who was posting to the mailing lists/
commiting code and then mailing status reports to the mailing
list each month? That would certainly help us stay on top of
who is active vs. inactive.
