By "hand-written" and "merge" I meant that there needed to be something 
other than the javadocs. And there is: these "-base.xml" files get 
merged with the model data, and they contain <screenshot> tags etc which 
provide info that just cannot be embedded in the javadoc. I was 
expecting real html in the templates rather than a custom format, but 
the current template format is fine.

BTW, how similar is this to the way trinidad generates its docs? 
Identical, or somewhat modified? Is the "template" file format the same? 
(just curious...)

This all looks great.

Just two minor comments:

I don't much like <br/> in html at all, and certainly not two of them 
together. It doesn't make any semantic sense, and creates really ugly 
output. IMO, a paragraph tag is the right thing to use rather than 
linebreak. I would suggest *not* wrapping the first sentence in a 
paragraph tag; it isn't needed and looks ugly, but this works:
 * Triggers a standard dojo baseScriptUri etc etc.
 * <p>
 * Allows the alteration of the dojo ...
 * </p>

And the first sentence of any javadoc block should be a stand-alone 
summary. The first sentence of this doesn't make sense as a summary:

+ * The MyFacesDataTable extends the standard JSF DataTable by two
+ * important features:
+ * <br/>

Not worth fixing at the moment, but maybe worth keeping in mind when 
making future changes..
