Is the convention here discussing an issue before filing a bug?

I've noticed PSCX command help text is missing the data types of the parameters. For example:

SYNTAX
    Ping-Host [-HostName] [[-Count]] [[-BufferSize]] [[-Timeout]] [[-TTL]] [[-AllAddresses]] [[-Asynchronous]] [<CommonParameters>]

would be clearer (and more like built-in commands) if it read.

SYNTAX
    Ping-Host [-HostName] <string[]> [[-Count] <int>] [[-BufferSize] <int>] [[-Timeout] <int>] [[-TTL] <int>] [[-AllAddresses]] [[-Asynchronous]] [<CommonParameters>]

. The data type info should also appear in -Full and -Detailed help output.

I guess it depends on the issue/feature/bug/task ;-)

In this case, it's a good suggestion - so file it in the issue tracker.
