I'd say its problem is not misunderstanding but rather a dogmatic enumeration of political statements without sufficient explanation and discussion.
Quite right. I think the short document was intended as a "condensed version" of the Anarchist FAQ and Proudhons writings. Thank you for the link to the Primer though; it is well written.
Anarchy is largely misunderstood by most of those who use it as a buzzword. Primary sense of this word is `absense of government', which is very far from common misconception that `anarchy' means `disorder', compare with Proudon's maxim `Anarchy is Order'.
When people complain "things will descend into chaos!" I smile, because I have played extensively with fractals, and I know that chaos is very orderly, but not so orderly as to be boring.
