yes, why not.

I did a list of items to separate the ingredients for the final text.

As I wrote in the commit message, this is just a example to show the
structure and share the main message.

What I wrote is just a 10 minutes sketch, to share an idea. This is **not**
the text that I'm proposing; what I'm proposing here are the structure and the
concepts/ideas/messages. The final patch will be written appropriately, but
before doing it I would like to collect the messages that we want to put in
it; I listed above what I think is necessary to say.

It is a Sphinx tag to avoid warnings at build time. Instead of re-writing
exactly the same text in all files, this one is included at the top of all
translated documents. But, since it is not a real document this is not
included in any TOC and sphinx complains; that's why we need the orphan tag
