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. -- Andreas K.
