There is an article in "Infoworld" (April 17. 1995) by Kelly Conatser
on "Documentation Downsizing" on page 55. It discusses the emerging
trend to replace hard-copy documentation with on-line docs and help
systems. The pros and cons of reducing or replacing hard-copy or
providing both hard-copy and on-line docs are considered.

Hmm, gives an explanation for publishers providing third-party manuals
to "fill the gap."

Definitely worth reading.
