Personally, I prefer to have such notices in UPDATING.  For example, 
recently I got bit by an upgrade to subversion which resulted in it 
changing from using DB 4.0 to DB 4.2, and my repository was down for 
about 20 minutes while I tracked down how to upgrade it (and 
subsequently filed a PR to add that notice  to UPDATING).

But I guess your point is fair about DB admins... You are after all 
updating a component of the DB so you should think to read the 
directions.  So go ahead and leave that out.
