I'd wager that there has never been a single lucene or solr release
that followed every single instruction to the T.  Which means that
people need to use their heads and understand that "many of the items
may be optional, or may be modified as necessary."

You can't point at the guide as a *reason* to do something, only *how*
to do something.  If I knew someone would point to it and say "you
must do XYZ because it's on that HOWTO" then I would have vetoed most
changes to that page.
