No, not quite; stuff in the ABI directory should be in the special format
used there.  You're partway there, but the free text outside of the
entries itself doesn't belong there.  I'd split the file, moving the free
text to an RST file, probably in the admin guide.  The actual ABI entry
information stays in the file you've added now.
