    Then what about using a Help key to display the additional information?

It sounds like more trouble than it is worth.

Many questions Emacs asks can be disabled or made less frequent by
setting options.  I do not want to start making all of them display
info about those options.  That would be a lot of work, and not worth
the trouble.  (And we have more important things to do.)

I don't mind adding a feature that tells y-or-n-p and yes-or-no-p a
help string to can display for C-h.  (Tho it's a bit harder to do this
in yes-or-no-p, since it is a normal minibuffer.)  But if it is added,
we must not let the presence of this feature be used as ammunition for
lots of arguments that we must _use_ it to mention all those options.
