   What's wrong is to mistake one's own interests, which
   are typically limited (parochial), for the broader
   interests of Emacs as a whole.  Just because you might
   rarely read the manuals, that's not a reason for Emacs
   to drop development of manuals or reduce their quality.

It's wrong inasmuch as it's incomplete.  That's natural, though.
We are all born ignorant, and begin as solipsists.  Emacs, OTOH,
knows its place: the vehicle to unfix files and ferry its users'
focus, their (point) of view, forward, backward, through various
expressions and forms.  It will never arrive, never be complete.

Still, people help it, and it helps people -- that's fine, too.
