Well, I am talking about a section which is simply unique in its section 
number, where the sh implementation would have to have to be understood 
by any invoking application (shells included) - because it is the 
section reserved for sh built-ins.

If the current man implementation's architectural overhaul can lead to a 
major benefit for every Unix user, why not?

FreeBSD has always been the pioneer. This change allows huge ease when 
referring to much-needed information quickly enough.
