But the problem isn't that it's imprecise.  It's flat-out wrong.  My opinion would be that it's always a bad idea to put wrong information in the documentation, especially when it's the first Google hit.  It can lead to all sorts of confusion and frustration (as it did for me).  Users are likely to assume documentation from any official source is the final word.

If precision is the problem, could it be reworded to be more vague?
