OK: for example the Cocoa help menu thing is IDE-specific, it only
runs on SC.app, and we don't really think of it as being a documenty

document is a feature of the IDE, and can't be separated from it -

Grateful for further thoughts on this.

Yeah I understand what you mean. Maybe you get the local doc class from an IDE class? I don't know. I think we need a proper spec for this.

I'd like to see sc-eclipse become a nice option even for
non-eclipse-heads. That requires a good slimmed-down eclipse bundle,
but also good handling of Document functionality etc.

Yes, that would seem to have a lot of potential. How does it deal with help?
