I don't think that Michael Bentley is the documents maintainer. Are you 
trying to pick a fight with him or improve the docs?

Personally, I do not think of slices in the way this tutorial suggests, 
but I think taking it out without replacement would not help. If you 
want to add a more accurate replacement, I think that would be better 
received than just saying that the section should be removed. Even more 
so if you provide it in the form of a patch.
