Yep, I agree that would be better. Right now one might end up thinking
something is not working.
About the SLD viewer, how about adding

I was thinking that we could add a button to compute them, and see if we
can stick them into the FeatureTypeInfo metadata map so that
they get remembered (pressing again the button would update them).

Right. For the moment I'll just re-link it to latest docs, self hosted
would be better, but I don't see how to
make it work right now, given that the RST requires a different build
