I wonder if that is a misunderstanding? A JavaScript (EcmaScript)
solution could be valuable for browsing the HTML documentation stored

A search engine solution could give a similar functionality as part of
an online search of the HTML documentation on the web.

(A search engine can be used locally to, but that looks rather
inconvenient to me.)

What is unethical about using EcmaScript instead? Or, do I misunderstand you?
