TBH, for clusters I would insert a sentence like
"If you are administering a cluster of many identical Gentoo machines, please 
see $WIKIPAGE before enabling submission"

and there then have a few more instructions (like how to enable only for one 
machine, and additionally provide us with the cluster size). I guess in this 
case we can add this further step, since whoever is doing that will be both 
invested in Gentoo and able to read docs.
