No problems with doing that. I'm pretty sure some of the little tools, 
scripts and gadgets for other big projects like Squid are partially or 
totally undocumented. And it's not like Windows (any version) has every 
little tool documented (or even 100% complete) when they ship it, and 
people pay hundreds or thousands of dollars just for one license of 
that. And good luck convincing MS to add docs just because you email them.

If you want to fix the docs or pay someone else to do it, go for it. 
Personally I'd rather the dev team work on Samba 4.
