They are used in the description of the GConf entries for Sugar. On the
first start of Sugar 0.96+, the content of these entries will be used to
create a system-wide connection in NetworkManager 0.9. Changes to the
values in GConf after the first start of Sugar 0.96 will be
ignored. Users / administrators who previously modified the GConf
content directly (instead of going through the Sugar UI) should now
modify the connection in NetworkManager.

I'm happy to accept a patch to clarify the wording. We should still keep
the description around for those upgrading from Sugar up to 0.94
to Sugar 0.98+, skipping Sugar 0.96 in the process.
