I know what you're trying to accomplish, Graeme, but you're coming off like

So that's enough being off-topic. Back on-topic, I would think making
available the changes in several different ways would be useful: 1) in a
text file included with the WordPress install ... 2) on the
WordPress.orgwebsite ... 3) as part of the installation text
