>Gee, instead of 'upgradable' why not use 'upgradability'?

Because that would mean making up an extravagent and complex word when
there is no need for it. What's wrong with "easily upgraded"?

There have been loads of 'making up words'discussions on this list, so I
don't want to start another one. However, as technical authors, surely our
role is to simplify concepts, and the use use of complex words where simple
ones would suffice interferes with this.
