Xanadu as a product is obviously dead and had flaws from the beginning - but the ideas behind still shows the limitations of the Web and todays computer systems. One of the most stupid limitations is Copy & Paste: You copied the "17 rules of Xanadu" from the Xanadu FAQ but the reader has to reconstruct the connection. It is not obvious who wrote the original list (Andrew Pam at some time between 1994 and 2002) and whether you modified something or not (you modifed the numbering schema). I would prefer a Wiki-like diff with your article at one side and the source at the other and then browse the version history of the FAQ to see when which sections were added. If Copy & Paste would be implemented as something like 'clone' and 'merge' from revision control systems, we almost had a kind of Xanadu.
