I agree.
We can't define who uses WP, and we can't define how they use it, so I 
don't see how we should try too hard to define how they should seek out 
If we have 2 or 3 people on the team who are both willing and able to 
contribute their time and energy, then I think we need to embrace what 
they bring and forget about any minor issues of repetition.
I think the repetition will occur because of the style of answer needed 
for the different information seekers - but it's not like Codex is space 
limited is it ? I'm not saying we need different ways of addressing 
things like Template Tags where a learning curve is to be expected, but 
for the UI, I really don't see why more cannot mean better.
