Debian Reference improvements

While translating, I've encontered some bits that can be improved:

#: debian-reference.en.xmlt:1472
msgid "All <emphasis role=\"strong\">fully-qualified filenames</emphasis> 
begin with the \"<literal>/</literal>\" directory, and there's a 
\"<literal>/</literal>\" between each directory or file in the filename.  The 
first \"<literal>/</literal>\" is the top level directory, and the other 
\"<literal>/</literal>\"'s separate successive subdirectories, until we reach 
the last entry which is the name of the actual file.  The words used here can 
be confusing.  Take the following <emphasis role=\"strong\">fully-qualified 
filename</emphasis> as an example: 
\"<literal>/usr/share/keytables/us.map.gz</literal>\".  However, people also 
refers to its basename \"<literal>us.map.gz</literal>\" alone as a filename."

Should the example be explained? Text can be:

... which means file \"<literal>us.map.gz</literal>\" in the directory 
\"<literal>keytables</literal>\" which is in the 
directory\"<literal>share</literal>\", which in turn is into the directory 
\"<literal>usr</literal>\" that you can find in the root (top level) directory 
\"<literal>/</literal>\". However...

Other one is:

#: debian-reference.en.xmlt:1477
msgid "The root directory has a number of branches, such as 
\"<literal>/etc/</literal>\" and \"<literal>/usr/</literal>\".  These 
subdirectories in turn branch into still more subdirectories, such as 
\"<literal>/etc/init.d/</literal>\" and \"<literal>/usr/local/</literal>\".  
The whole thing viewed collectively is called the <emphasis 
role=\"strong\">directory tree</emphasis>.  You can think of an absolute 
filename as a route from the base of the tree (\"<literal>/</literal>\") to 
the end of some branch (a file).  You also hear people talk about the 
directory tree as if it were a <emphasis role=\"strong\">family</emphasis> 
tree: thus subdirectories have <emphasis role=\"strong\">parents</emphasis>, 
and a path shows the complete ancestry of a file.  There are also relative 
paths that begin somewhere other than the root directory.  You should remember 
that the directory \"<literal>../</literal>\" refers to the parent directory.  
This terminology also applies to other directory like structures, such as 
hierarchical data structures."

Should be explicited that genealogy tree most senior node is / ? Text can be:

...where the grandparent of all files and directories is the root directory 
\"<literal>/</literal>\". There are...
