No one knows what the link from the original ticket contained or what the original intent of the ticket was.

Essentially, you're asking for someone to implement a mystery feature that even you don't care enough about to make the slightest attempt to define it.
I think you may be kind of overthinking this (not an insult, in fact it makes you fit right in here). If you want a spec, it's basically:
  1. Think of game events where context-sensitive help may be useful;
  2. Write a list of said help in the given format.

How much of this you do is up to you - there could be 3 or 30 or 300 entries in the list. And of course you can choose not to.
