That's quite a gem you found there. I think it refers to the channel
numbers being shown a bit weirdly in the VSE; it looks like there is a
channel 0, while there actually isn't. I think this is the "special
one" the manual refers to.

Things that come to mind:

    - Loading a video and placing it on the timeline.
    - Configuring the render settings based on the video properties
      (dimensions & frame rate)
    - Rendering the VSE to a video file (covering at least exporting
      to a Youtube-compatible h.264 file).
    - Cutting a video into strips, and moving them around.
    - Cross fades between video strips.

I think with these things covered, most people that want to "just edit
a video" are helped.
