Two problems with these references to the Guide:
1: I think Peter is talking about things that might have been included in the 
Guide rather than things that actually are in the Guide.

(or maybe it's only the second point)

2: I don't think of Dave Beckett as a Guide reader.
   He's happy reading fairly turgid technical material for developers, and he 
seems to be saying that this section looked too difficult, and seems to be 
asking the fairly open-ended question of can we make it easier?
  The answer might be no we can't, but I don't think the answer Dave is after 
is found in the Guide.
