The "presumption" was made that the majority of readers, including the
OP, would have the basic intelligence necessary to differentiate between
the instructions to use "the latest java package" and an *example* using
"an example version".
There's really no need to pass laws against bad weather, or sharp
corners on furniture, to protect idiots from themselves - it's just not
possible, as demonstrated by your confirmation biased ability to read
stupid in carefully worded instructions.
