I think it would even be more useful to have documentation for a 
specific TYPO3 version (branch).
It would be a little more work to have the documentation in the same 
branch structure as the PHP sources. "Backporting" documentation to 
multiple branches is relatively simple as git is quite good at cherry 
picking (as it doesn't look at files but at the content itself).

Having chapters as pages (or even smaller) with navigation to move 
quickly around the manual would be very useful.

If you have to work with older versions of TYPO3 it's not very useful to 
have the latest version; you actually want the version which is relevant 
for the TYPO3 release you're working with.
