Improved access to CAAF briefs

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces has quietly made a worthwhile change in its website. It now includes a new page for "Briefs of [should this read "in"?] Granted Cases Without a Hearing Date." According to an explanatory note:

In descending order, the following cases have been granted by this Court and ordered to file briefs. These cases have not yet been scheduled for hearings. Links to the briefs are provided soon after the briefs have been filed at this Court. Cases will be removed when a hearing date has been scheduled -- see Hearing Calendar -- or when another disposition has been published.

This is a step forward, although more can be done, even without shifting over (as the court should) to PACER. For example, it would be highly desirable to have access to supplements to petitions for grant of review. 

For comparison's sake, here's what the Supreme Court of the United States provides for a current military-justice-related case.
