Looks good, but can you explain me the inline thing ;)

Can we also change
"One of the default merge directories included in the <DefaultMergeDirs> 
"The default merge directory included in the <DefaultMergeDirs> element."
because i can't find any more dirs mentioned in the spec.

And we need to include some notes about the NotShowIn key.
