DeveloperGuides is an overview of what documents we
need. I suggest you fold any similar ideas from other
pages into that.
IdealDeveloperDocumentation appears to be a shopping
list of points to cover. Does it correspond to one or
more documents listed on DeveloperGuides? 
Perhaps we should begin creating pages for each
document we want, and move the points there. 
Eg, a page 'Quick Guidebook for ISDs' which lists what
the document must cover. IdealDeveloperDocumentation
can then be deleted. The same goes for
CodenameGraphite. (Sorry Don -- we can keep the
project name, but it's easier if page names describe
what they are.)

Don't thank me -- you've just appointed yourself as
recruiter of ninjas!
