Yes, I think so.

I think we should try changing the documentation first, as that is a
Good Thing anyway.  When that is done, we could consider whether any
code changes are needed.  (I actually expect that to become evident
while the documentation is re-written in the directions I proposed:
whoever will do that job will discover that, for example, to be able
to produce a stand-alone document with Org, one would need features
that currently belong to some unrelated Org part -- which would mean
some code needs to be added or modified to make that feature
seamlessly available to document-writers.)
