I'd be happy to take this one on. This could be kept simple and straightforward:
1. Why are duplicate/overlapping indexes bad?
2. How to locate them.
3. How to resolve/delete to remove duplicates.

This is definitely doable in the confines of a single article.
Thanks,
-Ed

Ed, you've got the writing bug, it seems.
