Good points.  Well said.
I was being tongue-in-cheek.
I consider myself a 'user' who just listens in.  
Sorry to make this conversation any longer than it needs to be.

I really hope this was tongue-in-cheek.  

1.  There are more users than developers.
2.  We were all once users too.
3.  We're probably better able to deal with weirdly-named documents in our
    project than the users are.  

I think that things should be named so that they make more sense to
the users, not to us.  How about finding a better solution?  (I
suggested "Maintainers Guide" in an earlier e-mail, which avoids the
ambiguous D-word.)
