Pulling back 0.5 inch from both sides should eliminate any need for double-sided master pages as well.
Let's see what others think. Just now I loaded it into Adobe Reader, 
printed on US Letter fitting to paper, and it came out quite legible and 
readable. Is a larger binding margin really needed? I don't know.

One thing I would hate to see is it getting bogged down in minutiae -- 
this is a volunteer effort, so don't hassle the volunteers too much.
