Yeah, distant was a poor choice of words.  The issue really comes up if you happen to start reading with that section (say when revisiting the docs with an imperfect memory of what you read before).

So, I agree that no change is *required*.  But adding the example of "the usual idiom" as you suggest seems like it might be worthwhile.  I'm fine with either course of action (or inaction, as the case may be).
