We need to be careful when saying "current". Ubuntu 18.04 is still
quite current enough and will be until 2022 (as it doesn't go EOL until
2023). I'm not sure I can even get Sphinx 3.

So long as it can be done in a way where documentation reads well still,
yes. For example, how should we re-write the example I mentioned so
that "eMMC" isn't duplicated?

We'll have to figure out what to do about updating CI, but I'm not sure
moving the host version is a good idea at this time.
