I'm sorry, I tried to be cute and failed :$

This is not official name for documentation files that are meant for inclusion
and not as standalone manpages.  I think they are similar to 'partial templates'
- usually just called "partials" - hence my use of this name.

Example: date-formats.txt included in git-commit(1), git-commit-tree(1)
and git-tag(1).
