I wholeheartedly agree. Documentation is something that must be 'Just Done' 
like so many other things: 

 Documenting stuff that is fundamentally flawed (I am not saying CCK is), or 
documenting stuff that is simply broken doen't really help. It is easy to 
say 'this is not a bug, because we documented it'. Its better to just fix the 

Hence I want to start off with making some innards of CCK simpler and more 
logical from developers POV. And in that same process document these innards.
Right now one can spend ages on explaining what the difference is between 
widgets and fields. But without the code supporting that difference, without 
examples that show these differences, it is an uphill battle.
