Substitution levels are used to replace a standard levels, removing and replacing abilities with a different set without effecting any previous or subsequent levels. You can have as many substitution levels as you desire in your set and when your character reaches a level with a substitution level he/she will be able to select the substitution level or the standard level as he/she desires.
