Presumably because backup has previously only been described in
the FAQ-o-Matic.  But I'm pretty sure this has been the documented
backup method with the Berkeley DB backends since forever.

"the documented" -> "a documented" backup method.  In the FAQ, which
people were commonly directed to read earlier in OpenLDAP's life.

Getting back to how to speed up restore:

If you do move to slapcat/slapadd, note that tuning slapd as described
in the Guide speeds up slapadd a lot, if you have not already done
that.  So does the -q flag to slapadd.  There was a time when a
normally configured slapd would not open a database built with slapadd
-q, but I think that was a long time ago.
