Totally agree, but I would relegate that to a separate effort. The
main problem with diagrams like this is trying to squeeze in too much
information in order to preserve completeness, at the expense of
clarity. It would be more ideal to start with a very simple diagram,
then move on to other diagrams to zoom in on pertinent detail. It is a
delicate balancing act. In this case, I would say to put "how Poky is
built" into the 3rd or 4th diagram in a series.

I'm glad to see this conversation happening!
