Let me start with a reference to Nazis, just so we can reach
the Godwin-point and be done with it.

If somebody thinks they can improve the documentation let them
submit a patch.  This provides something concrete for people
to comment on and the maintainers can make a decision
as to whether they want to make the proposed change.

Until I see something in writing I've no opinion one way or
another.  As a rule, getting rid of extra words makes
for clearer sentences.   The sticking point is in what is
considered "extra".
