training question - The Art of Classical Riding

I was reading another thread about getting a horse on the bit and one of the replies had this link:

The Art of Classical Riding--The Training Scale

I have a few questions about this but didn't want to hijack the thread. First of all is this scale the same regardless of discipline? Second, when a horse starts to relax, lowering her head some and stretching her back (not evading the bit) is this desireable and would it be considered suppleness? Third, when do you know how to begin focusing on the next level of the scale?
