It would help through the node system.  Export users can skip
the initial nodes, whilst newcomers can skip the latter nodes.

There can be a list on how to read the manual according to different
needs.  For instance, for newcomers suggestion on using first three nodes,
eighth node, and thirteenth node.  And so on for other users.  Some users
have commented how long the manual looks.
