I don't think "methodology" is the right way to describe something like like
this. It sounds more like a planning document or an approach to
accomplishing something. "Online Help Development Plan" might be a better
description.

The use of documents like these are advocated in JoAnn Hackos' _Managing
Your Documentation Projects_. Working in-house, I develop them routinely
but when I worked as a contractor I never felt comfortable delivering
something like this without a signed contract.

Since you haven't seen much of the software, you have a good reason to keep
it vague, witholding details until you have a commitment (and a chance to
take a closer look at the software). As a businessperson your prospective
client should respect your need to protect your intellectual property.
