This page seems like 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 section only, i.e. using the #section-h 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 up in a wiki template on its own, which also takes care of the "ambox info style", this can be reduced to:

{{update_faq | What is a patch? }}

and would trasclude the content. If an optional caption is supplied, it creates a link to the FAQ:

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