I can understand the thought process aligning with the website but I personally think it would be better to strip out the additional options from the community edition.
The website documentation covers all 3 products and that's very clear but if have chose to use the community edition library it would cleaner to only have the features available to use in the usage for that library. We are talking about documentation in the runtime library and users would know what version they have. If maybe understand if the community edition has these features disabled that could be activated by a key it's separate builds with features stripped out so why not strip out the help too?
At the moment there are 4 differences (that I can see) but what stopping that being 10, or 20 differences in future versions which would clutter the community edition usage instructions.
Should the community edition only show the community options, the pro shows it's, and enterprise its own (if they differ)?
I'm all for clean, concise and transparency especially when it's documentation and usage.
