Say what? New product ships, but doco doesn't need to be in a 'finished
state'? Sorry, completely disagree. May as well ship no doco, and whenever a
user somewhere selects help, a request is generated for some to be written.

Taking this a step further, why bother writing specs? Just wait until a
developer is stuck on a feature, or an end-user doesn't like the feature as
provided, and generate the need for a spec on the spot.

Yeah, no need for a finished state, so no need for an initial state either.
