He probably hates the stupid notices at the top of the man page telling you
how out of date it is.  Either provide a good man page or no man page. 
Incorrect man pages are completely useless, and correct man pages that say
they're incorrect are almost as bad.

As a texinfo victim myself, I definitely see his point and admire his
conviction :)

Have fun,
