Those are good comments. Thank you. I can see how to improve the wording.

I could add them to my current branch, and submit a new patch. However, 
I'd prefer to have the present patch approved, then submit a new patch 
to make it even better. Editorial changes to docs are sometimes easier 
(and more gratifying!) if done as a series of small improvements, rather 
than as one big change that drags on and on.

Best regards,
