Documents with the characteristics that you describe may be referred to as
Engineering Requirements Documents (ERD)or Product Requirements Documents
(PRD). Documents of these types that I have encountered can have the
following components:

Purpose (generally state what deliverables will be, any enhancements to
Development Plan
Prioritization of tasks
Project Details
Installation info
Configuration info
Listing of modules or components
Naming standards.

Scope and Audience
Definitions & Acronyms
Product Description
Project Details
-New Features
-Upgrades and Patches

The PRD resembles a Project Plan.

Not complete I realize but gives you some idea of content.

Does anyone have a metadocument for a large software system project?
Meta is meant to be "an underlying definition or description." For
instance, metalanguage is a definition or description of language. An
English grammar and dictionary together could be said to define (and
describe) the metalanguage for English.
The sort of thing I am looking for would include functional specs,
overviews, logical specs, etc; plus a brief definition of each.
