It looks like a good direction to go.

Delete "is"?  (Also, assuming the "is" is dropped, to my ears it'd read
better with a "the" in front of org-open-at-point.)

As far as I can see (by looking at the diff and quickly testing), the
file+{sys,emacs} functionality is being removed.  That's probably
okay/intended, given that it was marked as deprecated in 9.0.  But
perhaps it's worth mentioning in ORG-NEWS that this functionality has
now been removed entirely.

nit: I think the period should go after the quote (regardless of the
strange preference in American English to put commas and periods within
