Your explanation looks clear to me. Thanks for adding it to the wiki !

Regarding your comment in 7.3: it is indeed not possible to use the 
XDG_DATA_DIRS method to load a different set of documentation for the 
system-installed gnucash. This is because the 2.4 series uses a 
different mechanism to locate the documentation, which is hard-coded at 
compile time. So XDG_DATA_DIRS only works with fairly recent trunk 
builds and for future system-installed gnucash starting from GnuCash 2.6.
