Emacs is a perfect example. The documentation can be integrated into
emacs as context-sensitive help. We cannot then distinguish. Since
pretty much all documentation *could* have this integration done, we
can't usefully distinguish at all.
(In fact, the GFDL licence for the Emacs manual may make integrating it
as context-sensitive help into the GPLed Emacs legally impossible.
instance, does the GNU manifesto as invariant section hurt?
I say yes. I don't want to have to put it into my (hypothetical)
context-sensitive help file for emacs, which consists of extracts from
the GNU Emacs manual! I'm not even sure where to put it legally!
This follows from the above, of course. :-)
