I believe that the reasoning here draws a distinction between UI
elements and 'content'. UI elements become familiar through their
unchanging nature (every time I pull down the Image menu in photoshop it
looks the same as last time, unless I've upgrade photoshop inbetween).

Content, by contrast, is by nature unfamiliar.

The more familiar the text in question, the less help the reader requires.
