I can think of two good (IMHO) reasons for installing debian documents:

1) the documents will be available to you when you are attempting to debug
a problem that is keeping you from accessing the internet.

2) Google gives you a lot of hits that are really badly outdated information.
Of course all documentation is somewhat outdated, but documentation that is
delivered as the latest version of a debian package, is maybe less outdated
than most.

But, as always, YMMV
