My own understanding is that the block is for documentation on the new features in the 3.5 cycle, not about going back and fixing all the stuff that's been missed so far. 

You just wrote this stuff. Let's make sure we know how to use it. Even if you just do it very simply and don't integrate it into the admin guide, at least get something written up. I  can even help format and integrate as long as I don't have to scan source and guess.
