It doesn't really matter; the standard practice is to put it at the
beginning of the relevant section (Installation, User-level, or Lisp
changes).  The list of changes is reordered by importance when a
release is being prepared.

This is a Lisp-level change, and the wording seems to say that it is a
rather obscure one.  I would suggest an entry in the user-level
changes saying something like "Emacs now uses the full range of colors
supported by multic-lor character terminals for the default faces."
Also, in the Lisp-level change, I would think we should tell people
who write Lisp programs to prefer min-colors over the previous methods
of defining face defaults.
