Grip doesn't do anything about kernels. Some stock Debian kernels are
available but you're thinking of Emdebian Crush if you want
re-compilation of Debian packages or new packages added.

Nothing to do with Grip. That would be Emdebian Crush which is stalled
until MultiArch is implemented.

? Grip isn't built, it is processed. Any Debian system can process
packages for Grip, there is no limitation on architectures.

The documentation is the same as the original Debian packages. If you
have room for documentation, use Debian. There are no binary changes
between Debian and Grip, so putting the docs & translations back just
gives you standard Debian.

That would just be standard Debian or a standard Debian chroot. The docs
are removed during Grip processing, not moved elsewhere, so there is no
way to recover them from the Emdebian process - other than just use the
original Debian packages. Those could be unpacked onto whatever system
you want but you'll need the tools to view the manpages etc as well.
Typically better just look up the docs on a Debian system.
