I don't know anything at all about technical writing except from the
user end. But I do have a question for you. Are you writing for
"techies" or regular people? From my experience "techies" write for
"techies", not for the unwashed masses [ to which I belong ]. If your
writing to the masses please use the K.I.S.S. Principle.
The three best words in the English Language:
I LOVE YOU
Pass them on.
