This page is a good source to replace the various individual Wiki templates used in most "info boxes". The wiki extension "Labeled Section Transclusion" (LST) seems suitable to replace the regular (limited) transclusion feature. Update/upgrade instruction pages could then use "LST" to fetch the content from a labeled section (= heading) only, i.e. using the #section-h template function:

{{#section-h: Upgrading and Migrating FAQs | What is a patch?}}

results in:

A patch in Joomla! is a bunch of bugfixes, and might or might not include security issues. The patch announcement will always tell if a patch has fixed security issues. A patch is a minor upgrade. From Joomla! 1.0.0 to Joomla! 1.0.7 is considered a patch. Going from Joomla! 1.0,x to Joomla! 1.5 will be a major upgrade and should be treated differently.

Wrapped in a wiki template, which also takes care of the "ambox info style", this can be reduced to:

{{update_faq | What is a patch? }}

and would transclude the content.

If an optional caption is provided it creates a link to the FAQ instead:

{{update_faq | What is a patch? | How to apply a patch package}}

Example renderings

{{update_faq|What is a patch?}}

Talk:Upgrading and Migrating FAQs version 1.0/update faq

{{update_faq|What is a patch?|How to apply a patch package}}

Talk:Upgrading and Migrating FAQs version 1.0/update faq

And here's the temporary "template" :update_faq. DON'T use it in production :)
