Sounds right.

But there is another part of our docs which is still incomplete: the 
autogenerated reference docs, created (mostly) from javadoc-like tags.

IIRC (but I haven't checked recently) the mechanism is working, someone 
"just" needs to check that it is applied consistently to all 
components, and add "some" explanations in javadocs.

Very true.

Problem is, ATM I don't think anyone has a sizeable chunk of up-to-date 
consistent content to contribute. I'd love to be proven wrong though.

If someone could come up with that (in any structured format - we do 
conversions don't we?), I'd be all for starting to use Daisy to create 
"editorial" (as opposed to generated) docs, and would volunteer to help 
administer it if needed. But until this sizeable chunk exists, setting 
up new tools might be a waste of time.
