I agree that the reader would require minimal documentation, though 
things like some review of navigation (eg. two-depth level, 
next/previous structures), and search techniques, might be useful to 
him/her, not to mention general orientation of what a wiki is.

Search field with scope set to Markup group?

In general I think that if there is going to be an ambitious upgrade to 
the documentation (not yet an established goal), the project could be 
run in a formal way, beginning with a statement of goals and objectives, 
an analysis of audiences, technical specs for the structure of the 
documentation, etc. And ideally the project would be organized in some 
way -- project leader (Pm), sub-groups for sections of the 
documentation, etc.

Naturally the project documentation for the documentation project would 
be maintained in a wiki (a wiki field?), and developed iteratively and 
incrementally. Then specific suggestions like ours could be added 
incrementally and eventually merged into coherent designs during the 
early phases of the project.
