Because these are PRINTED docs., and they want Sans Serif font for both
headers and body and it makes the body text very hard to discern from the
headers, especially since all the paragraph styles are In Column as well. I am trying to do something to enhance readability and keep the text from
competing with bold headlines in sans serif typefaces.

It's very, very hard to read as it is laid out right now.

With luck the docs are just for decoration and nobody will try to read them.

The final decision is frequently made by someone who holds a belief of being an artist. My worst example of that was a printed manual for a software language (yes, it was that long ago!) where the production department artist put initial caps on lower-case keywords, rendering every single example incorrect. They did this AFTER I had signed off on the blues.
