    Description

      "To encourage developers to compose smaller arrays (each of which contains contiguous memory in its leaf nodes) to create larger array structures possibly exceeding 2^31 - 1 elements, as opposed to allocating very large contiguous memory blocks."

      I think it could use a little more verbose explanation: `to compose smaller arrays to create larger array structures`
