Here's my cut on documenting O-X-Y etc. I researched what the defaults did if one only selected two references. https://wiki.freecadweb.org/O-X-Y_type_attachment_modes
Excellent written description!

(I did add a bit of clarification to the Reference 1 instruction. Just drive home the point ("must be a vertex")

If would be nice to get some visualization of the process...

I think your animation would be a useful addition. I would make one change - attach to a prism rather than a cube, so you can see what happens when reference2 and reference3 are not perpendicular.

Indeed, but...
is there a way of doing it in a way that would allow one to slow down the speed or stop and start the "visualisation"?
.gif are my personal pet hate when used for this purpose ;)

Hmm...good question. I'm sure there is a way to slow-mo an animated gif. There are plenty of online gif tools to change the speed.

There is definitely a slow-mo setting in YouTube, but those are mp4 or other real video formats.

@drmacro

Yes, I am aware of ways to slow down .gif but it all involves downloading .gif and processing it - slow and cumbersome (and still can't stop at any convenient point)

YT vids are indeed very easy to slow down, stop and rewind - very good when you following tutorial or some visualisation to explain an issue (for example) but probably not the best solution for Wiki?

I don't know what the real answer is but I keep asking just in case there is someone who knows ;)

I think the wiki will allow other formats. But, I don't know if the speed control is available.

My taste, rather than an animated gif would be a slideshow of a gallery of stills, each depicting a step in the process.
I do find the animated gifs very hard to follow, so I don't try unless I'm out of options. Maybe it is supported in the wiki?
