Sorry, I couldn't understand what you pointed here. Would you mean the
number of file size and nodes?

Node is used in its API, but from the user's point of view, I think it
is OK to use "key-word" and "value".
Also, since it is hard to count those numbers by manual, I think user
can depend on tools/bootconfig which shows the number of node in the
configuration file now.
