Yes, I understand from a functional programming perspective, it's
perfectly fine.  You're right.  but you're still being pedantic.
Maybe setcdr the way I did was not very lisp-y.  I willingly concede
I'm a lisp novice, and I'm used to thinking in a more procedural way.
My point is that the manual would be more helpful to someone in my
position if it had an example saying don't modify quoted objects, and
why.

Anyway, if it's the opinion of the maintainers that the manual is fine
as it is, it's fine with me.

Thanks you for looking into this issue, and working on Emacs!
