That's certainly the simplest way.  However, it'll also wipe out any updates you've done with tlmgr, so it can take quite a bit of bandwidth to get back where you started.

Herb's message indicates that it already is.  I'll note that TeX Live Utility gives you access to texdoc results via the Info button, along with other information about a package.  This only works for packages managed by tlmgr.
