Looking the two bugs over (along with the interlinked bugs mentioned in the comments of the latter bug), my preference would be to work up an extensive update to many chapters of the Guide.

Let's keep it simple and just use this bug. It will be easiest to apply if you make one patch per chapter since each chapter is a separate file. I don't remember if you need to renumber the chapters if you insert a new one; ISTR that DocBook takes care of that. Further discussion should take place on the bug rather than the mailing list.
