I think you're right and that text shouldn't be in the translatables
that were sent out.  I would caution the Docs team to only use
admonitions for these sorts of comments (which will stick out like a
sore thumb and beg for removal at the right time), or actual HTML
comments that won't show up in the translatables (but which might be
missed in review).
