I actually think that not only should it be in the database but that  
the database should be populated over xml-rpc.  Why?

CivicSpace, Development Seed, Bryght, Bloggers all have different  
target audiences.   We should allow for the complete customization of  
admin/help documentation.   This is similar to the system module  
which allows for different site directories to be created with an XML- 
RPC call.

Imagine if you will you are a small independent contractor and you  
get a call from a client saying they can't figure out how to use  
taxonomy.  Change the admin help documentation on the source server  
and tell them to go to cron.php.  POOF instant understandable  

Of course, if I a patch doesn't get submitted to add this  
functionality in the next 72 hours or so I am going to go ahead and  
submit all 60 module admin help patches to head anyway.  :-)
