I just added that as well to the release notes, including the link to
the wiki page. The text now runs as:
      <sect id="xorg"> <heading>XFree86 to X.Org transition</heading>
        <p>The transition to X.Org contained structural changes. In case
        all installed packages are from Debian and also contained in Etch,
        the upgrade should by its own.
        Experience has however shown there are typical issues to be aware

        <p>The most important issue is that <file>/usr/X11R6/bin</file> has
        been dropped and only remains as a symlink to <file>/usr/bin</file>.
        This means it has to be empty at the time of the upgrade.
        The new packages conflict with most packages that used
        but in some cases manual interaction is needed.
        Please remember to not run upgrades within an X sessions.</p>

        <p>In case the upgrade aborts during X.Org installation, you have
        to find which file(s) are still left in
        You can use <prgn>dpkg -S</prgn> to find out which Debian package
        installed that file (if any), and remove such packages with
        <prgn>dpkg --remove</prgn>. Please note down which packages you
        remove, so that you can install substituting packages later on.
        Before continueing with the installation, all files in
        <file>/usr/X11R6/bin</file> need to be removed.

        <p>Please read <url id="http://wiki.debian.org/Xorg69To7";>
        for more details and other issues.</p>

In case anything should be changed, please feel free to reopen this bug
