Yeah, that's the general idea.

Well, the idea has been proposed some times now. It has its advantages,
but there are still some problems - updating a page on wiki.d.o takes
time [1], so they tend to become outdated. I also see a problem with the

themselves, as some people will get the idea that exaggerating could
speed up their application.
