These two sections seemed odd to me precisely because I didn't read the
docs in a linear manner.  I read around a bit, and then went back to
read it properly.  Maybe these sections weren't meant to be reference
material in that way, but as they are so easy to read I have come back
to them frequently.

James, I used your suggested edit locations, but took a slightly
different approach in r3293.  I hope the result meets your criteria:
