what he's talking about is, probably, that most people try the first steps
by _usb_ connection!
and usually (even if you run a dhcp server on your computer) usb
networking is no scenario for dynamic address allocation.
thus, new users see themselves rather fast confronted with the need to
edit the resolv.conf thru an ssh connection with vi -- because desktops
ususally do not do name resolution but rely on a router or so.
therefore the current default 192.168.0.200 is not much help either.
insofar it's probably a better idea to put some open dn servers into the
default resolv.conf -- it gets overwritten by networkmanager/whatever soon
