Considering that many of the commenters in this thread view OFFSET 0
as a vile hack that ought to go away, I can hardly see how that's
an improvement.

I tend to agree with Peter that there's no need to do anything until
we have a committable code improvement.  Documentation changes that
push people towards adding OFFSET 0, without any certainty that that
will be the long-term answer, do not seem like a net positive.

Also, considering that this behavior has been there since 8.4,
I think it's sheerest chutzpah to claim that changing the docs in
v10 would materially reduce the backward-compatibility concerns
for whatever we might do in v11.
