No, Zdeněk; I am asking for /important/ facts to be documented,
not the entire known universe.

And how about the code below:

The number of such productions is infinite; no documentation system,
no no matter how complex and complete, can fully document an infinite
universe of discourse, and therefore unless you can show that whatever
your write-only code accomplishes is something that B L User is likely
to want to accomplish, then I can see little point in documenting it.
