That is completely intentional. Almost all readers of the documentation will first need to understand the difference between text and tail before they can go and think about any more advanced use cases that will almost certainly fail on their first serialisation attempts. The most important aim of the new phrasing is therefore to make that difference clear. Everything else is secondary, although still worth mentioning.
