Don't worry about that. If you just write it in text, I'll add it to the hints
and make a reference to it in the book. The format is really pretty flexible
and simple. Just look at any other hint for the major headings.

Yes. Send me your blfs wiki login name directly (not via the list) and I'll set
you up with the proper permissions. I have to limit who has write permissions
or we get spam on the wiki pages.
