I'm not denying discussion. Discussion can happen here on the mailing 
list (as it has, very healthily so), in the issue tracking/revision 
control groups on groups.drupal.org (which is a great place for 
interested people to collaborate on fixing this), or in the 
Documentation issue queue (if you feel there are errors/omissions -- or 
just join the docs team and you can fix them yourself: 

The referenced node is a piece of *documentation*. Discussion does not
belong within a piece of documentation, especially not THIS piece of 
documentation whose sole purpose is to aggregate all the various 
discussions that have happened over the years.

Yes, that's probably true. I don't think this thread is done yet. :)
