Maybe if you had added your own packages in there, like mPDF or something then you might need them. I guess it should say that maybe? Personally i always used something like vendor_custom for my custom additions due to running with svn checkouts, but i guess if you have a tarball install then using the default composer location for adding stuff might make sense?

I guess if there's nothing in there you need deleting it makes sense, setup.sh will remake it and set the perms right so you can use the new package manager to install what you need in there afterwards.

Not sure, neither word makes great sense to me... i guess i didn't read it properly!
