I usually try to work with change owners on clear wording, sometimes it
works better, sometimes worst but that's why we have announcements in
place.

For wording - Changes are *not* supposed to be read by general public,
it's internal planning tool and docs/marketing guys makes it consumable
in the end. But generally I agree - better wording, better understanding.
