OK, good.

Yes, that was also suggested by Christopher in a private exchange of 
mails and it seems like a good and useful idea.

You know what, we already have such a chapter [1]. But it's in Inside 
TYPO3 which is dramatically out of date.

Maybe we can start by updating that particular chapter and add warnings 
to all others.

Indeed, which is similar to what Ernesto suggested. I think what Ernesto 
mentions could probably be achieved with text roles, but Martin is 
better placed than me to answer that part.
