That's Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, not Left Hand Side...
Please note that imagemagick version 22.214.171.124 has moved its global configuration files from /usr/share/imagemagick to
/etc/ImageMagick, following the FHS. See the package imagemagick-doc or http://www.imagemagick.org/script/resources.php

I'd rather put the warning part nearer the start, even if it is almost

This will lose any changes you may have made to these files, in the extremely unlikely case that you have customized them (doing so
was not officially supported by either upstream or Debian versions before 6.6.9).
