Thanks, everyone, for the advice. This explanation of why this "relative structure" might be preferable is very helpful.

What he has suggested is to differentiate the relative structure of
the information. This is what happens when you use Information
Mapping, or when you use a language such as SGML or XML.
It is highly effective in visually structuring your information for
the user to search and digest.
You are telling the reader immediately where the major topics are,
what are minor more descriptive topics, what the relationship of the
information is to other parts of information.
