IMO that command is less useful now that this screen is not a wall of
text, so I'd rather avoid that verbosity.

This is the same name as the section `(emacs) Language Help'.

FWIW, I personally find it's clear from context, but if you have an
equally short alternative, I'm all ears.  (And perhaps we should then
also update the Info manual accordingly.)
