If you provide both a printable and online reference help, you should change the structure of the help to fit the medium.
That is the crux of the matter - we don't have the resources to tweak the content like that, at least not for the first release. The thinking is that we can provide both (using either RoboHELP or Frame+WWP), but we can only optimize for one or the other. It's a challenge. :-)
