This is not a problem, in my view.  The boilerplate is an example to
be used for new pages.  All homepages of GNU packages should include
basic information (such as downloading, getting help, documentation,
etc.) but nothing should prevent the maintainers to extend them,
following the given guidelines.  The current page includes all
necessary details (AFAICS only the "Maintainer" is missing), so I
guess it would be a bit dumb to stick precisely to the boilerplate.

Anyway, I asked the GNU Webmasters to confirm this.

Here it is.  (Another thing to consider -- the footer currently says
that all reports have to be sent to address@hidden  If that's not
desired, you might consider changing it to address@hidden or
anything else that is appropriate.)

-
-<P>
-
-The name ``Emacs'' was originally chosen as an abbreviation of Editor
-MACroS.
-<P>
-
-The original Emacs implementation was written for the Incompatible
-Timesharing System (ITS) as a collection of TECO macros for ITS TECO.
-There was a custom of giving such macro packages names ending in
-``mac'' or ``macs''.  A further reason for choosing this particular
-name was that the abbreviation ``e'' was unused at the time on ITS.
