I think this reference is too weak. The link should jump out and bite
any hypothetical reader who has been vacationing on a desert island
for the last month. How about:

I'm tempted to propose guarding these lines with a torrent of
disclaimers saying that the descriptions are not attempts to describe
the full impact of each option, but in reality this will probably be
evident to any reader who genuinely does not know what this is about
("Postpone changes? Which changes?").
