Just somethings to think about connected with this:

"Good documentation cannot improve bad systems."
"The only way for user documentation to improve a system is for it to be
written before the fact." -- Edmond H. Weiss, _How to Write Usable User
Documentation_

His book has some very interesting ideas related to this topic -- well worth
reading!
