Yes, it's good. Incidentally, the Mma reference docs describe
what functions do, as opposed to what the user can do with them.

Someday Maxima will have a built-in help translator, which
chooses a tone appropriate for the reader.
E.g. "Esteemed Sir/Madam" (business users) or "Hey, man"
(for college students). In Spanish of course we'll have
"Vuestra merced" for any royalty who are using Maxima.
