Don't like the phrase. It sounds to me like something that does not belong in technical documentation at all. To me it suggests that something that looks or actually is rather flakey gets a coat of paint, but still has the flakes underneath.

Perhaps the entire action or belief needs to be spelled out in more concrete terms, or else simply not mentioned?
