Yeah, thanks... slightly counter-productive answer, potentially 
preventing others from adding a useful answer to the question by 
considering it wrapped up with a witty remark. This is not a simple open 
source project, it's a project centered around a typesetting engine. If 
there's no documentation for a documentation system, all hope is already 
lost ;)

I found /the XeTeX Companion: TeX meets Opentype and Unicode/, currently 
under construction by Michel Goossens [1], but XeTeX has been around 
since 2004. I find it hard to believe that his work is the first 
atttempt at documenting XeTeX, so I'm going to go with not believing it 
and asking the key players in XeTeX development where documentation can 
be found.
