That would be misleading, because only a small fraction of that node
is about _finding_ customizations.  Moreover the node does not discuss
what is intended to be the main way to browse and find options,
customize-browse.  On top of that, one should not make node name
changes lightly, because they may break existing links, some of them
in docs not included in the Emacs distribution (and which we hence can
not grep for).

   changing the info node header to 'Finding and Customizing Specific

Less bad, but still somewhat misleading.

   There is also no mention of customize-apropos-options,
   customize-apropos-groups, or customize-apropos-faces.  There should be.

That is easy to do.  I intend to send Richard a proposed set of
changes to man/custom.texi (mostly unrelated to the present
discussion) soon (probably tomorrow) and I can easily include a short
description of these three in `(emacs)Specific Customization'.
