Well, I guess it depends on how you define structure. I would say they 
are inconsistently structured within document types (e.g. 
reference/concept/how-to etc.) at best.

I agree with this and will try to illustrate how it occurs.

Agree. It's artificial, somewhat arbitrary, and only serves to 
discourage people. What might help, with certain types of docs, like 
tutorials and how-tos, is to include some kind of classification level, 
e.g., newbie/moderate/advanced.
