 Hello Wayne,
 I think UPDATING in RELENG_6 and HEAD is OK:
 $ grep 'reboot in single' /usr/src/UPDATING
         <reboot in single user>                         [3]
         <reboot in single user>                         [3]
 $ grep -A 8 '\[3\] ' /usr/src/UPDATING
         [3] From the bootblocks, boot -s, and then do
                 fsck -p
                 mount -u /
                 mount -a
                 cd src
                 adjkerntz -i            # if CMOS is wall time
         Also, when doing a major release upgrade, it is required that
         you boot into single user mode to do the installworld.
 I don't think RELENG_5 is relevant at this point but let me know if
 you want to see this changes in RELENG_5.
