We are using the + syntax to put stuff in their proper zones. It's
faster, but doesn't show up in the guy properly.
E.g. s+ is the secure zone (1 firewall rule instead of 3) and gw+ is
the guest zone (1 firewall rule instead of 4)

I don't know how to represent this properly in the gui.

Fixed in git head

(And to install a set of defaults that will “do the right thing” for the majority of people, so we don’t have to explain it very often.)

I agree that that page is puzzling as hell, and needs a pointer to
what sorts of DSL services require it.

as a secondary router it would be better to assign it addresses on
your existing /48
