I think the JPO should follow a tutorial style that's careful to develop 
topics in an easy-to-understand order, while the JPG should be a 
reference arranged in some alphabetic order by entity name (much as it 
is today.) The JPO shouldn't go into excessive depth on the details but 
should provide links to the topic in the JPG.

My Cheat Sheet is far from complete but shows one way that a JPO could 
be structured. Of course its organization and text are very much from 
the client perspective, and more material would be needed, or a separate 
guide, from the perspective of someone working on a transport or on a 
server itself.
