Yeah.  My guess was that when they are hunting for eye candy, they might
jump directly to (info "(auctex)Display"), so the intro there might be a
good place for discussing the WYSIWYG features of AUCTeX.

Maybe because it is mentioned in the overview of AUCTeX:

,----[ (info "(auctex)Summary") ]
|    One component of AUCTeX that LaTeX users will find attractive is
| preview-latex, a combination of folding and in-source previewing that
| provides true "What You See Is What You Get" experience in your
| sourcebuffer, while letting you retain full control.

Yes, please.  Just write a nice WYSIWYG paragraph at the beginning at
(info "(auctex)Display").
