Dear Gustav,

thanks for this proposal.  I do understand your motivation for this and
can see a document level entity being useful.  

For me, however, your proposed structure would clash strongly with my
usual working practice.  Specifically, I put all customizations and
settings at the end of my documents, along with, for instance, Emacs
file local variables.  These are things I do not change often and
usually don't care to see.  At the start of the document, however, is
the real content.  So, I don't particularly like the idea of having
settings etc. *before* the content in my files.

Just by 2¢.
