They are plain text files, not binaries or scripts and there are no short 
descriptions. Isn't intuitive that we are spoken about a file called 
"protocols" and another file called "services". Without the "/etc/", look like 
we are spoken about unknow files related with protocols and services features.

In that file there was used both lower and upper-case names. All the others 
packages names are in upper-case. Done only for consistency. If the proper name 
is in lower-case, then it should be changed in the full page.

Yes, is a know issue that should be resolved before send the book to print.

Good catch, fixed ;-)
