I think the manual should include things that are specific to Guix, or
that explain how to do generic things (like encrypted storage) in a
Guix-y way. There are a lot of ways the manual (and GuixSD itself) could
be improved in this regard.

I'm less enthusiastic about including things that are basically
universal concerns, like password strength or physical security.
