You're diverting the discussion and getting off the topic.  Please
don't.  Acknowledge your 4-hour estimate was unrealistic and let's move
on.

Your bug submission was the right way to raise the issue, and although
the manual will not be changed (unless I've misunderstood the messages),
people seem to be in favor of providing alternatives in the menus.  This
is similar in spirit to what I suggested to you about adding "Meta is
accessible via the Alt key" footnotes to your messages.  Meta will stay,
but new Emacs users will be helped to understand that it's bound to the
Alt key on most modern keyboards.
