What is the purpose of your document? To entertain or to instruct? I
think that the overuse of a thesaurus (in a technical document) will
confuse the reader. Use simple and concise language. Using the same
terms over and over again to express the same thing avoids confusion.

I think EXPENSIVE is stretching it in that instance!
