Actually, that is a good point.  We would want to keep a few factoids
there like minimum memory and so forth, because the Release Notes are
probably an order of magnitude more consulted than the IG.  Those
factoids also happen to be the most likely to change over time, so
this sounds sensible to me.

Whoever handles the Installer beat should probably check this strategy
with the Anaconda team to make sure they're OK with it too.
