These issues are rightly decided as corporate policy. Many companies
regard the mention of limitations as detrimental and fear that any
publication about future products or product changes might reveal
secrets or be construed as part of a contract. Generally the legal and
marketing departments, not technical publications or engineering, set
these standards.

The board of directors should already have in place the policies for
distinguishing between helping the customer and aiding the competition.
