That would fit most of the tutorial.

Things that are truly indispensable are mostly those which the readers
already know: basic cursor motion, inserting a character and deleting
a character.  The only other necessary stiff is C-x C-f and C-x C-s,
but those can be replaced by menu-bar commands.

Does it mean that the entire tutorial is "advanced topic" and should
be moved to the end of itself?  Hmm...
