Right, and every Agile methodology I've looked at brings
documentation into the fold (or at least pays lip service
to doing so). I'm most familiar with Scrum, which if done
right should have documentation in the backlog for every
sprint, and should have documentation present at the daily
scrum meeting.

If that isn't happening (or the equivalent in whatever Agile
variant you are using), I would agree that you are not doing
Agile and it's time to get out the fire ax and break in.
