I would vote for making copious use of the <doc> section in every block’s XML file.


For example, as a beginner, I spent a lot of time fiddling with “Stream to Vector” to figure out the parameters were opposite from what I thought they were. It is frustrating to open up a block’s sheet and find it “empty”.

  make a change like this on a block that has been in use for many years, with folks having figured out the semantics, despite the odd naming.
