Hej Gunnar!

There is a complication with the official Ubuntu documentation: The old 
version might stay around for years in 14.04 LTS, so it would be good to 
have a text specific to Xenial.

Maybe the release notes is a better place?

Or your documentation: after all, when the Startup Disk Creator is used 
in Xenial, the user must have Xenial running, so the documentation can 
be there :-)

Best regards
