Agreed.  And it's not just about luring potentially interested users.
It's about describing Emacs - its most important features.  No need
to glorify anything; it is sufficient to point out how Emacs is

This description of Emacs includes what you can do with it, at the

includes some Lisp features.  It does not mean just pointing out
that Emacs has lots of "plug-ins" etc.
