Pointers to this outdated info and these typos in the form of comments
to that chapter would be appreciated.

BTW, I presume you mean developer-contributed comments when you say
"noted in the file"?  I don't understand how this is a bad thing.  Yes,
there are inconsistencies in the documentation, but isn't it better to
be able to read them inline than to have each reader rediscover them
fresh, given that we (ZC) really haven't been provided with the
resources to update the canonical docs in some time?
