At least the wording of the Subject should be fixed.

It is fundamentaaly broken to associate the names "loadaddr" and
"entry point" with each other.  Both are completely independent
entities which mean totally different things. It is pure chance if
the entry point of some loaded image should be at the very beginning
of this image, but this is almost never the case.

Best regards,
