Because software isn't documentation?
Think of it this way: national security would be so much easier to
maintain if we could just define cryptography as a weapon of war,
equivalent to a nuclear device, "for the purposes of the import
regulations". We all know how well that worked.
Similarly, it would be a lot easier to just define documentation to be
software "for the purposes of the DFSG". But does it make sense?
