Yes, that's the reason.

Ok - detecting the presence of blocks or components dynamically is 
certainly possible, but AFAIK there's no easy mechanism for relaying 
this info to an XSLT page that would include links or not. I'd be glad 
to be proven wrong though ;-)

So for now I agree that a notice like you mention is a good idea - as 
Tony mentioned it's good to have all helloworld samples listed in one
