So: 

The person who wrote the stuff, understands it in intense
detail without the documentation, and therefore has little or no need
of the documentation thinks the documentation is more readable as it is.

The person who is trying to learn the stuff, and must rely heavily on
said documentation thinks the documentation would be more readable with a
a minor fix.

Hmmm.
