r12448 & r12441 : wouldn't it be better to make them links to 'x-precfg' or 
similar, rather than the too-generic - & misleading - values used in xml/html?

If you're going to be linking to 'logical-' (or 'meta-'/'pseudo-'/... 'packages') 
then it's best to get good accurate & intuitive names for them.

(Btw, am not against linking to 'logical-'packages per se; we do similar here 
quite a bit - e.g. define classes/sets such as 'mta' (similar to in b/lfs), 'x',
