Emacs 23.2 is to 23.1 as 22.2 was to 22.1: largely a bug-fix release,
with a few stand-alone new features.

I seem to recall that for Emacs 22.x, the manuals were thoroughly
checked in the way you describe only before 22.1. After that, they
were only updated were needed.

The manuals were checked quite well before 23.1, so following the same
policy as for Emacs 22, and only updating them where needed, seems
fine to me.

The big changes in 23.2 are CEDET, which has its own manuals; and the
change from mail-mode to message-mode. I do think the latter will
affect quite a bit of documentation.
