I think it's the *prime* place for it.  It obviously doesn't matter if
you're not affected by $performance_problem, but if you are affected,
then it's quite likely going to be important.  Deciding whether to
migrate to a new version will often be a decision about a *lot* of work,
so it'll not be made lightly, and without a motivator.

If we go by that logic, why are we listing parallelism? Why are we
listing new planner/executor features that lead to faster plans?  The
reason we do, is that they're addressing concerns that users had, which
they need to know about.
