Yeah, I think something more prominent in there would be a good place to 
start.  There is a mention of this further down in the "Working with 
cardinality statistics" section, however a statement about this should 
probably go up in the performance tips.

I think one of the major problems with the way derby generates the 
stats, is that it will only generate stats if the index is created on a 
"non-empty" table.  I'd say that 99% of the time, indexes are created 
before the data added to the tables.  So the stats never get created.    

Making this very clear in the performance tips, would be a great step
