Yes. Very good idea.
We probably should consider to maintain the documentation in a git module and package and ship it together with ownCloud because some people use ownCloud internally without internet connection. Or they configured their firewall that the server can´t do calls to the internet.
This is mostly the problem if people report that the apps page or the admin page is very slow btw.
