1.1: you dont actually need a Gentoo host ... you could do it all in a chroot 
using an os that supports linux emulation (or more commonly, another linux 
distro)

2: the text explaining crossdev's -t option scrolls off the page for me ... 
maybe just bum font ... also, small grammar corrections:
"though it still haven't" -> "though it still hasn't"
"To create full" -> "To create a full"

3: "packages into target root" -> "packages into the target root"
"several variables more" -> "several more variables"
"You can tweak" -> "You should tweak" (often host CFLAGS contains invalid 
-march/-mcpu settings for the target)

4.3: you should advise people to change CROSS_COMPILE to whatever they set 
their CHOST to and whatever they passed to crossdev (plus the trailing -)

5.1.4: the dietlibc example is screwed up

5.3: if you have people add 'noman nodoc noinfo' to their FEATURES in aemerge, 
that'll automatically cut out a lot of documentation
the staging dir is mentioned as "/opt/arm/stage" when earlier you said it was 
"/var/tmp/cross/arm"

hope that helps
