For a start it is possibly all just hot air unless it is discussed on
the debian-doc list and/or a patch submitted against the debian-faq
package. I know that you are involved in translations and hence have

by default and is the preferred program to perform system installation 
and major system upgrades. Aptitude may be preferred for interactive 
package management.
