I only noticed the comment about A blank line in the  last page of Herb's instructions. Since this is a make-or-break detail, maybe it could be emphasized a bit more, (in \Huge bold letters)

Ok. I updated the TeXLive2012Changes document to put some emphasis on ending the updmap.cfg file with a blank line. Also added that to the figure caption to make sure. You can download it as TeXLive2012Changes.pdf.zip at <https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10932738/index.html>.
Good Luck,
