The Basic Idea behind the Ooo doc is to write it once and then it should  
be converted by
the TER to Usefull formats (currently only HTML) but in Theorie PDF should  
be possible.
just not Implementet.

but in future they trying to change the default documentation format from  
Ooo to Docbook
(because ist Easyer to parse and convert (i Guess) and a lot of developer  
dont realy like complex
formats. with docbook they should be able to edit the documentation in the  
favorite sourcecode editor
or use an docbook editor.
but i guess for typo3 version 4.x the Offical documentation format will  
still be keep Ooo
and for 5.x it will be docbook.

hopefully the typo3.org will modify the TER to automaticaly generate pdf's  
out of Ooo's
