The modified docstring of alist-get has now an example.  It says:

When using it to set a value, optional argument REMOVE non-nil
means to remove KEY from ALIST if the new value is `eql' to
DEFAULT (more precisely the first found association will be
deleted from the alist).


  (setq foo '((a . 1) (b . 2)))
  (setf (alist-get 'b foo nil 'remove) nil)

  foo => ((a . 1))

Does this suffice?

BTW, it doesn't say you have to use this feature.  If you find it
confusing, use delq+assoc+setq, or alternatively, what map.el provides.
