Sure, but the references say things like "the run-time parameters
listed in Section 16.4" and "Available parameters are documented
in Section 16.4" so somebody might not think to follow the link if
they already know what parameters they're interested in.  It might
be helpful to add another link that says, "And by the way, if you
want to make the changes permanent, see Section 16.4."
