Sorry, but that's absurd -- you're saying when I just need the names of a few
more commands I've got to _fire up my web browser_ (not to mention be
connected to the net in the first place)?!?

C'mon, nobody's suggesting that full manuals be inserted into tla, just that
the help command be a bit more friendly about which lines it outputs.  This
is not difficult to implement.
