This was an incredibly good idea, and whoever thought of it
should get a big pat on the back.

IIRC, it was Jeff's idea.  And I agree, it was a great idea.

<snipped user-documentation proposal>

I am half-tempted to attempt to standardize the name of
this [bugzilla documentation] component, but I'd want to
talk to bugmasters first to see how easily we could transition.

It looks like I filed this issue in response to previous comments on
the matter as bug 338663.  I agree with Olav's comments there; it
shouldn't be hard to make this transition...other than one notable
exception: I don't know how to resolve  That kind of breaks
the almost-standard[1] 'docs' naming convention.  The are several
proposed possible solutions, but it doesn't seem very clear to me
which one should be used (if any).


None here.  One question though...if this user-documentation proposal
is agreed upon, is this something that we want to start
applying/enforcing in 2.18 or 2.20?  It seems we often have
suggestions in one cycle and then they start getting applied/enforced
in the next cycle (perhaps after some additional discussion early in
the next cycle), but it's still relatively early in 2.18.
