I think guix can be used for more than just packages. When you say documentation, what comes to mind is package documentation, but we also have man-pages, which contains no programs, only… well… man pages :). We also have sicp that contains only a book.

With cross-compilation, it shouldn't be too hard to build something for an embedded system, though that's still something that needg to be demonstrated I think.

Could Guix be used for packages that do not strictly contain 
operating system software?

For example, could Guix be used for packages of embedded code and
their dependencies to be run on a little RTOS, like Zephyr, or
bare metal, like Arduino or PlatformIO libraries?

Could it be used for hardware, like a Kicad pcb package that
depends on component and footprint packages, or packages of
FreeCAD mechanical assemblies that depend on part packages?

Can Guix packages be used for documentation and other data?

Or are all of these types of packages way outside the scope of
Guix? Although it could still be used for the operating system
software development environments for these types of projects, it
might be very powerful to package other types of code and data as
