The whole chapter proceeds as if <sourceDoc> did not exist, and all the 
genetic material is to be embedded inside <facsimile>; then suddenly 
<sourceDoc> is used in an example without explanation. Am I missing 
something here?

(11.2 ff)

"Transcriptions of this kind are closely focussed on the physical 
appearance of specific documents, needing to distinguish the traces of 
different writing activities on them, such as additions, and deletions 
but also other indications of how the writing is to be read..." [Delete 
the third comma (after "additions").]

"then, methods of describing important extra-linguistic phenomena in the 
source: unusual spaces, lines, page and line breaks, change of 
manuscript hand, etc." [Suggest pluralizing "changes" for better 
parallel structure.]
