Thanks for that documentation proposal.  A few comments (only the last
one is major):

Remove "very".
Use English spacing after sentences; i.e., two spaces after the period.

Defaults should be in square brackets, not angle brackets.

One more-general comment: there is a lot of duplication here in the
three examples.  Can you rewrite it to give just one example, and
then briefly discuss the modifications needed for the other two cases?
That would make it easier to follow.
