Why would it be unreasonable? If education is a goal, I don't see how
those overview sections are unreasonable. A firm grounding in the
overall concept before tackling a particular subsystem is a very good
idea. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of autonomous, loosely-connected
build scripts. And the book already directs the reader how to approach
the book, so mentioning these section intros is all that would be needed
to satisfy the book's responsibility for getting someone to read them.
