If they skim the docs too fast more aliases for config key-words won't
help! That's an major mistake. One shouldn't try to work around this

I'm against more key-words which need more explaining. Note that there
are lots of sample configs floating around. If you introduce aliases
which key-words should they use? It causes more confusion than it helps.
