Thanks, that looks good.

Granted, “a fair bit” was an overstatement. On reflection, I realise my issue was with the text of "(though they can of course examine and reuse existing settings)” – it seemed at odds with the main intention. I see you removed that part in your patch though, which works for me.

Is it worth mentioning CLDR in that section, as a source of better display names?
