Hmm, I'd like it, if we also (re)moved stage1 and stage2 from visible
directory, and renamed stage3 to something more appropriate by the
2006.0. I mean, it will probably be confusing for a new user if the
guide just says "Oh, we have this things that say 1 and 2 in the
directory, but please ignore them and start from 3, because 1 and 2 are
only for devs, k?" And it won't help, that old users will most likely
continue to advice for stage 1 in so many support channels.
