I'd like to request that, for future surveys, we also include the
category "Headings". I'd like to get a feel for how many documents use
the collapsible outlining feature, but I don't know a good way to do
it. Using headings is not a good indicator, but it's the only thing I
can think of that might help. (If there are headings you _might_ have
used collapsible outlining. If there are no headings, you almost
certainly did not. So the lack of headings is probably a reliable
indicator that collapsible outlining was not used, but the presence of
headings is not a reliable indicator that outlining was used.)

Does anybody have a better suggestion for an indicator? Maybe the
"surveyor" could indicate whether he uses collapsible outlining, or
whether he knows that any of his "correspondents" use collapsible
