I would recommend against listing any advice.* in the command manual
pages.  They are meant to give an advice in cases that are often
confusing to new people and are supposed to advise how to turn it
off in the message.  We want users to see them and understand the
situation, and more importantly, we want to strongly discourage
users to decline them until seeing them and understand what they
advise for or against.
