Can't agree more. Articles on
http://webkit.org/coding/technical-articles.html are great, and I'd love to
see more overviews of how various parts of WebKit work.

Some high-level docs that are kept updated might be nice. Of course the key

I don't think it's realistic for us to keep it updated though because it'll
be a huge burden to WebKit contributors.  But as long as it's dated, I don't
think it'll be an issue.
