Going and (re)reading the section, I would say that it's not at all obvious.  In fact, as I read it, it seems to promote the use of the variables as I had tried and failed to use them.  I haven't submitted patches for documentation in the past so I'll have to research it and then type something up to submit.

Thanks for pointing out the section.
