What do you actually expect from documentation?  That, as you read it,
it realizes what you are searching for and all of the sudden, you are
transported to exactly the statement you need to read?

Why don't you actually ask the question a different way?  Hi, I'm trying
to figure out how to do XXX.  What steps should I take to figure out how
to perform that in Emacs.  Maybe you would learn how Emacs is the
"self-documenting editor".
