But what about providing some clues in the help for those who know what they want but are unacquainted with the developing system in the first place? Your approach leaves too high entry threshold.

Continuing with the Calc functions, I might know what statistical distributions are but to find the concrete function I'd still turn to the search function, to which I'll feed a set of plain English words which I would expect to be in description.

Yes, no and no.

First thing: by "hermetic" I mean "understood by people with some preliminary
knowledge about certain subject".

Precise language does not have to be hermetic, agreed. But being hermetic is
often the most efficient way to precisely communicate what you mean. Moreover,
it is generally safe to use, because it is highly unlikely that someone
without presumed knowledge will even look there.
