And of course, Akcaagac's proposal to use PDF—slow-to-render, paginated, optimized for printing on dead trees—as the default documentation format was, quite bluntly, insane.
I won't touch the rest of your comment, but I have to say that in my experience PDF works better than other formats currently available for documentation. Pagination is an advantage, or at worst does no harm. Being able to print from it is also an advantage, although a rarely-used one. The only downside I see is that it's a derived format. You still have to maintain the original source for the documentation in some other format.
