+1 for this. I'd definitely use this to help my clients understand how 
to use, edit, and customize their sites. For now, in some cases I've 
resorted to putting descriptive titles (that are hidden by css on the 
front) to try and make it easier for them. Clients still tend to get 
embarrassed by having to ask, and its not pleasant for me too realize 
I've not made it easy enough.
