I don't have a lot of time just now, so here are just two thoughts:

- Starting the poussette on the left foot is part of the spice in the soup
of SCD that makes it tasty and interesting. Yes, we could change it to
»right« or not specify it altogether. We could also get rid of pas de
basque altogether which would certainly do wonders for new beginners and
make SCD that much more accessible and »fun«.

- As far as the »Russia vs. RSCDS« thing goes: Look up »bikeshedding« in
Wikipedia.
