I'm doing much the same thing myself. Thanks for asking the question
- the various responses are very interesting.

I've recently been looking at Shannon Greywalker's website, where he
describes his own brand of minimalist documentation.
http://greyfiti.wikidot.com/sdg:gmeth-con-minimalism-documentation

The information is organized using the principles that he advocates.
I don't much care for the in-line linking, but I found the concepts
worth considering.
