But it _does_ belong someplace in the repository and there is already a
lot of it embedded.

I'm also not sure that what is in there already can really be called
documentation of the _Windows_ API. Rather it is documentation of what
we _think_ the API is. That is a small but important difference.

I'd also like clarification on why you think it does _not_ belong in
the source code. Some projects insist that documentation _has_ to be
part of the source code so that it will be properly maintained.
