Yes, as said we plan to have this. Most manual have been tagged in Git, 
so it's possible to release them for a given version.

I agree that it would make manuals simpler.

I'm indeed not sure how to proceed here. We got help from the design 
team to skin the new documentation site, so it's definitely possible to 
get in touch with them, but I'm not sure that such a general remark 
about the typo3.org skin would be handled very swiftly, as this whole 
design/skinning is quite a sensitive topic.
