Why ?

The thing (the info) already _exists_.

So, to rewrite it is an idiotic thing to do.

I, as end user, see _no_ benefit in rewritten documentation. Unless you point 
out _particular_ defects in Matlab documentation and fix the defects.

Otherwise don't bother.

If you do bother, you'll do an _idiotic_ thing - you squander your _very_ 
_limited_ resources instead of doing something _useful_ for end users.
