Two suggestions, nothing major.

The <tip> needs to have an empty line above it and the <para> inside should be indented. Run textproc/igor over your changed file to get some useful reports on what to change.

I need to dig into whether we can use the &latest; or &latest2; variables to automatically reflect the latest FreeBSD releases here. That way, we don't need to remember to bump this every time a new release comes out. For now, you could wrap that release number in <replaceable>s to indicate that something else could be put in that position.
