No! In fact, I was doing that already even before 1.3.1 came out, I think.

We talked about this in IRC today, but I'll reiterate here for those
who missed that: I think Alex's work on the docs branch is awesome,
but I feel like the branch has dragged on for way too long. This means
uncounted users have gotten worse documentation than they could have
gotten, because we were still tweaking some little thing or not quite
satisfied with the language somewhere. While this kind of thing can be
unavoidable with code, where there's much more complexity to deal
with, documentation isn't like that, and we shouldn't treat it like
that. Documentation patches should go straight to master or on very
short-lived feature branches.
