I'll give you the ip man page as another perfect example. I've never read a more obtuse manpage in my life. I get the impression the manpage writer is charged 10 dollars a word for emmiting anything over 100 words.

The whole man pages tree on the install I am currently doing is 13
megabytes.  The sd card its on is 32 gigabytes, so we'll have at least
10 gigabytes we could use for man pages without impacting its ability to
store and use a 300 kilobyte package, if they were just written to teach
us what to do.

If you aren't volunteering to write the man pages, could you at least tone down the rhetoric and find a way to express your concerns without the name calling and insulting characterizations?
