Hardware documentation can often be justified for liability reasons, but
not software. At least in Australia people aren't liable over software.
Also in Australia payouts tend to be much much smaller, and suing more
infrequent than in the states so it isn't nearly so easy to justify
documentation on the threat of liability payouts even for hardware. So
we still get back to the problem of having to try and cost justify doco.
