Package booktabs encourages users not to use vertical rules.
The purpose of this manual is to concisely and clearly describe the
features provided by LaTeX, not make value judgements. (Personally, I
find almost any table is best off with few or no rules, especially
vrules, but that's irrelevant here.)
Concerning other packages, should they be mentioned (packages that
enhance core functionality) or not mentioned at all.
I have included references to a few packages here and there, such as
beamer and geometry. When the practical reality is that a given package
should almost always be used instead of/in addition to some core
feature (slitex, [a4paper]), I think it is only helpful to say so.

The purpose of this manual is to concisely and clearly describe features

typographical or technical X.
In general, please don't add text "encouraging" or "discouraging"
certain styles of output. Just be factual about what the features do.
