The "movie" angle is interesting. Picture this... the opening 1/2 page sets up the packages for Ubuntu, downloads files, builds core-image-sata, and runs qemu. All this done without even telling anyone what YP is. Follow that by "what just happened... we just built and ran an image using the Yocto Project. Then the QS launches into the "Welcome" stuff and flows on as normal. That would be a unique beginning for a technical manual.
I sense some derision in your word "unique"? Thats fine, your doing most of the work and you have to be happy with it.

However I don't think it is unique. Yes it would be a bad approuch to use in a reference manual but I have found a number of intros/tutorials start this way and I always enjoy the approuch. Perhaps the QS at only 9 printed pages is too short to be structured this way. The QS guide itself is just this "taste of the bigger picture" for the full doc set.

As I said, just some thoughts.
