While I would not want that to substitute for other pages, I can see
how that could provide useful help. However, since the purpose of the
sandbox is to experiment and test, it seems that these examples might
not survive too many edits. One might get around this with some
mechanism to periodically restore the sandbox to a basic state that
included the examples.
