I think you are ~right.

and to a new setup, no matter how old you were as a user, but things can

I think I agree with this, but Beginner's Guide wasn't harmful from my
point of view, even if I would rewrite a similar chunk of instructions with
a philosophical disclaimer and a bunch of links to stuff explaining the
Arch Way. IMHO the only sane approach to Arch Linux is to first comprehend
The Arch Way understanting all the technical and philosophical choices.
People now are setting up Arch boxes because it's cool.
