Hmm, are there other existing templates or is this the first one?

I'd recommend breaking "Choices" by using "__Choices". This will avoid
mistakes by translators (in some languages, the commas mean nothing
and such translators often forget the commas....or replace them by
special commas for their language.

Maybe s/The whole system/Entire system : not sure, here. That would
require changes to your maintainer scripts of course.
