I actually think this fits very well with Jeroens current text on "What
is LFS".  In there, there is an analogy of constructing various types of
buildings (houses, airports, etc.).  Maybe this chapter 9 stuff could
tidy everything up and almost say something like "If you intend to build
an airport you'll need to consider x, y & z from BLFS before you {trash
your host, reboot}" etc.

Just my 2c worth.  Adding it to the mix before I forget it!
