I'd keep it in. Management probably knows the junk's in the system, but
they've forgotten about it. Seeing it all in the doc, like you mentioned,
might remind them of the stuff and prompt them to at least make a decision
about what to do with it. At any rate, it's sometimes easier to take
content out later than add it at crunch time.

So, I guess the question is should I clean up the documentation to
the way the system should be, or should I take the position that the
document is what the system IS?

On the plus side of keeping the scraps in, it may prompt management to
initiate a system-wide cleanup program.
