Why?  BLFS is up to about 1100 pages and LFS is somewhere around 300.
There is plenty of room for more.

But in-depth explanations can be added as appendicies that first time
readers don't need to read to do a build.  I've always been in favor
of adding all the bootscripts, and now udev rules, as appendicies to
make the book "complete."  There is a lot of great information in
those scripts and files, but I suspect most users just install them
like any other package and don't look inside.
