I definitly think so!

http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Etch/ is written in a similar 
spirit (see the GettingStarted guide there). (But it's targetted at yet 
another audience then your document.)

It is maintained on the Debian wiki (this only works with an editor who 
reviews all edits and acts when needed), and then turned into the 
debian-edu-doc package, see it's source code to see how :)

Then it's translated via .po files and the resulting html and pdf versions are 
put online at http://maintainer.skolelinux.org/debian-edu-doc/ - as well as 
uploaded to debian as the debian-edu-doc package.

(Work on the lenny version has begun, but hasn't been finished by far. Just 
replace s/Etch/Lenny/ in the above wiki.d.o URL.)


P.S.: I've set the reply-to to the debian-doc mailinglist, please cc: me on
