Yes.  I think this is an *excellent* idea!!

But everybody's gotta be an editor, right?  So, here's my minor 

'Documentation is available online, if you first install the 
man.tar.gz distribution files.  Then, from the shell prompt, enter 

      man man

and you will see a description of the 'man' command.  If you are 
unsure of where to look, type

      apropos subject-word

where "subject-word" is your topic of interest; a list of possibly 
related manual pages will be displayed.'
