I wouldn't take a discussion here as the consensus. Because of that, I had
opened earlier today a poll on the facebook group, as that seemed like a
better place to get a general sense. See:

I know not all here have facebook, but, so far, out of 24 votes in the 5
hours it's been on, no one really opposed. We have 15 people that actually
like this and 09 that feel indifferent. Hence, I would take this as
something that has more of a positive feedback as a general consensus than
a negative one, at least for now.

You have a complex take on this by the way. It seems we have similar ideas
that this is not a real distraction/confusion as people should be curious
and copying from help files wouldn't really be a problem, but you're
also taking other things into consideration and proposing yet more colors
and complexity, which I think is another conflicting perspective to what
was previously brought up as a problem here.

I guess that opening a github discussion about documentation ideas and
issues is maybe a better place for what you're bringing, cause it's sort of
a digression. Would you open it?

And also, I would like to stress that I don't call the shots and I didn't
do this n the dark. I propose changes and usually people bring stuff up if
they oppose it on github. Not a lot of people are there of course, but
anyone who cares can join and discuss, propose stuff. For reference, here's
