Do we really need an elaborate authoring support in this case? A tool
such as the one being discussed needs mostly small chinks of plain
text interspersed with hyperlinks, something for which Customize (and
indeed even Help functions) already have the necessary infrastructure,
or at least large parts of it.
I'm probably missing something (since both Lars and Per would have
already thought about that), but what?
