Rather than quibble about how the question is asked or how the
information is presented how about if we just assume good intentions all
around and avoid reading condescension into attempts to help?  If you
agree that it is appropriate to mention that a binary exists then there
we shouldn't have to spend a lot of time tip-toeing around sensibilities
to make sure that no one is offended by the way it is mentioned.
