I haven't followed this thread closely, but just as another point to
consider: if you even think might possibly want at some point in time to
localize your docs, you'll want to minimize figurative language as much as
possible. Metaphors that are rich in meaning to an American audience may be
both costly and difficult to translate. Additionally, you run the risk of
inadvertently offending users from another culture, pissing off your
customers, and assorted other ills.
