That's actually the killer reason.  There are a few places where
documentation strings get drawn into the manual, and those documentation
strings can be used more and less tersely.  They should be verbose
enough to be useful which may include examples (examples take up a whole
lot of space so one needs to carefully consider whether they are worth
the imprint).  However, stuff like grob properties are often "generic"
and can hold for quite a number of different grobs, partially getting
interpreted in somewhat different manners.  Specific examples for those
are likely not covering typical use cases well enough.

There may still be some missing ground between the various manuals.
It's not easy being significantly better though.
