In the proposed 2.3.x, you might want to adjust the wording slightly, as phrases of the format "a presentation of X from Y" often indicate that Y is doing the presenting, as in "a presentation on the book from its author". Perhaps "the user can receive a presentation of any recognized direct commands *in* rendered content"?
