I haven't read through your patch yet, but I wanted to ask one thing:
instead of removing things from chapter 5's introduction I think we can
move some parts to the other chapters where they belong. Not sure if you
took that into account of it's necessary. I admit I don't read the
introductions very often. I can't even recall what chapter 5's intro
contains at the moment.
