I'm sure I will regret this in the morning . . . .
Xah, since the docs are a community effort, you surely can (and have)
pointed to genuine blemishes in them.
I am however at a loss to understand just what the perceived problem
is here. 5 short sentences, one defining a term, 1 stipulating the
interface, two pointing out and clearing up a potential cause of
confusion, and a reference. All are clear, and score quite well on the
content:words measure to boot. (Certainly it is clearer and more
informative than the words either you or I have here added.) What's
your complaint? Not enough cursing?
